Winter: The Dolphin That Could

Winter the dolphin was rescued by SeaWorld in 2005, and brought to the Clearwater Marine Aquarium. Her tail was badly injured after being caught in a crab trap, and so a prosthetic tail was specially designed for her. Winter was the star of the 2011 film Dolphin Tale starring Ashley Judd and Morgan Freeman. A sequel, Dolphin Tale 2, is currently in production, and set for a theatrical release in 2014.

Winter resides at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium with her dolphin pals Hope, Panama, and Nicholas. You can learn more about Winter by visiting the CMA website at
