The new, hit movie “Dolphin Tale,” brought much-deserved attention this weekend to extraordinary wildlife rescue efforts done at marine mammal facilities around the world. The SeaWorld Rescue Team – which also helped with the initial rescue transport of the film’s star Winter – uses its expertise and creativity every day to devise new ways to rescue, treat and return to nature these extraordinary animals. No rescue, no case is ever the same. Examples of this ingenuity at work include:
