One day, a fisherman found a baby dolphin caught in a net off the east coast of Florida. After freeing her, he discovered that she was badly injured, especially in her tail. Rescuers caught the feisty youngster and brought her to the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, a premier treatment facility. Veterinarians, dolphin handlers, and volunteers worked around the clock, and the baby responded to their care–except that she eventually lost her damaged tail. How could she swim without one? Read the amazing and inspiring story of Winter (named for the season in which she was found) and find out how a spirited little dolphin and a caring and innovative group of people show that anything is possible.
