Last February I posted some pictures of Winter, the injured dolphin that lost his tail and learned to swim with a prosthetic one. A movie has just been made about his story starring Ashley Judd, Harry Connick Jr and Morgan Freeman here in Clearwater. The release date for the movie is some time in October of 2011. This past Saturday was the day of the wrap party and another baby dolphin gets stranded. The team at Clearwater Marine Aquarium was getting ready for the party when they got a call to rescue a baby dolphin.

The aquarium is re-opening this week after being closed for filming for about 2 months. I'm going to try and get there to see the new baby dolphin in the next few weeks.
