A SeaWorld rescue van carted baby Winter to the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, which used to be a sewage plant. The CMA was small, hardly like the mega-aquariums in Orlando, and lacking resources. But a vet and trainer worked tirelessly to save the calf.

4. Her tail had to be amputated — and against all odds, Winter survived.

Her tail had to be amputated — and against all odds, Winter survived.

And thrived! She learned to swim with and without her prosthetic. Her trainers describe her as feisty and energetic. People call her the “bionic dolphin.”

5. Her story made waves, and Winter became a Hollywood star! She even landed a sequel, due out next year.

And maybe even a entirely new aquarium, according to local news.

Like a boss.

13. And swims around like, “What’s the big deal?”
