Yes, winter weather up north brings snowbirds to our area but Winter the Dolphin is bringing the world to our door! The movie, "A Dolphn's Tale" opens Friday around the world. Last week the press descended to see where it was filmed and to meet the star - Winter, the dolphin without a tail.
The Clearwater Marine Aquarium hopes that the publicity will bring visitors and donations to further its cause of rescuing, rehabbing and releasing dolphins, sea turtles and river otters. It is a non profit run by a small but very able staff and hundreds of volunteers. With today's economy some rescue centers are not able to handle the cases they used to and CMA hopes to expand to increase the number of rescues it takes.
