SeaWorld Animal Rescue and Rehabilitation Program 

Dolphin-mom-and-baby
A rescued common dolphin is returned to the ocean after extensive rehabilitative care at SeaWorld® San Diego’s Animal Rescue Center. Rescuers created a flotation device for the young dolphin because he could not swim on his own. The dolphin gradually gained strength and began to swim on his own, enabling him to be returned to the ocean for a second chance at life. SeaWorld® San Diego’s animal specialists have rescued more than 16,000 animals that were ill, injured or stranded over the last five decades.
