Dolphin Tale 2

Synopsis: It has been several years since young Sawyer Nelson and the dedicated team at the Clearwater Marine Hospital, headed by Dr. Clay Haskett, rescued Winter. With the help of Dr. Cameron McCarthy, who developed a unique prosthetic tail for the injured dolphin, they were able to save her life. Yet their fight is not over. Winter's surrogate mother, the very elderly dolphin Panama, has passed away, leaving Winter without the only poolmate she has ever known. However, the loss of Panama may have even greater repercussions for Winter, who, according to USDA regulations, cannot be housed alone, as dolphins' social behavior requires them to be paired with other dolphins. Time is running out to find a companion for her before the team at Clearwater loses their beloved Winter to another aquarium.

It's squishy!

There's little fish, Troy! Come see!


Mandy, come back! Mom's gonna be mad!


When CMA staff and

volunteers arrived on scene...

CMA 1307A was found on

her left side struggling.

Right behind you.

Her blowhole was largely underwater.

Okay, don't stress it.

Bring in the stretcher!

She had small lesions,

mucus coming out of her eyes...

and was severely sunburned.

A common problem with

beached dolphins...

as their skin isn't adapted for

prolonged exposure to the sun.

The team suspected possible lung infection,

which led to her being disoriented...

which led to her beaching.

This dolphin was nicknamed Mandy,

after the little girl who discovered her.

It's 92. It's really, really high.

Now, science doesn't know

whether dolphins feel emotions...

the way we do:
fear, joy, sadness.

But their brains are

as complex as ours...

and to us, Mandy seemed terrified.

So, like always, we treated her

as gently as we treat one of us.

We managed to get her into a stretcher

and over to the rescue vehicle...


...which wasn't easy,

as the area was a mud flat.

- Phoebe, you all right?

- Watch your step.

Mandy was eight and a half feet long

and weighed approximately 350 pounds.


- Watch your step.

- Thanks, Kyle.

When we got her back to CMA,

we immediately began giving her...

fluids and antibiotics for

her respiratory infection...

as well as a topical

ointment for her sunburn.

Since then, she's been gaining

strength every day...

and is well on the road back

to being a healthy animal.

All right. Next session, we'll go

into more details about strandings.

I just want to thank

you for volunteering.

You guys are what keep

this aquarium going.

You and really big

truckloads of fish.

See you Wednesday!

Hi. Excuse me?

Sorry, we just wanted to say thanks.

We volunteered because we

heard all about you and Winter.

All Susie ever talks about is dolphins.

She wants to be just like you.

- I do not!

- Sawyer! We're starting in 10 minutes.


Right. Excuse me.

Hi. I'm Hazel Haskett, and welcome

to the Clearwater Marine Aquarium.

Fifteen years ago, my mom and dad

bought an old sewage treatment plant...

and turned it into a hospital for

sick and injured marine animals.

Their goal was to rescue, rehab and

release as many animals as they could.

Today Clearwater Marine Aquarium is home

to turtles, otters, sharks, and dolphins...

including Winter, the famous

dolphin with the prosthetic tail.

If you're interested in

volunteering at CMA...

please see our staff

at Guest Services.

Enjoy your day here at

Clearwater Marine Aquarium.


Hey! What the heck...?

- Oh.

- My bear!

Rufus, no!

I'm sorry, honey. Are you okay?

Ma'am, I am so sorry.

If you can't control your pelican,

you really shouldn't have him here.

He's not exactly our pelican.

Whose pelican is he then?

You know, I don't think he

really belongs to anybody.

You okay?

Look, I really would

like to make it up to you.

How about if I take you down to the

gift shop? And I'll get you something new.


Is that okay, honey?

Hi, guys! Welcome to

Clearwater Marine Aquarium!

How's everybody doing today?

Thank you. We are so excited that you

chose to spend your day with us.

And today we have

a very special guest.

Please give a warm welcome to

champion surfer, Bethany Hamilton!

Thank you, Hazel.

I am so stoked to be here.

How about everyone out here?

You stoked?

And being able to spend time

with Winter, who has just been...

such an inspiration for me,

and I'm sure to you as well.
