On October 7th, 350,000 children from 12,500 schools visited the Clearwater Marine Aquarium on a field trip – a virtual field trip. These children traveled to Florida and met Winter the Dolphin without leaving their classrooms, through a live webcast presented by Scholastic Books, publisher of the inspirational children’s book Winter’s Tail: How One Little Dolphin Learned to Swim Again.
Enmeshed in our own daily challenges, it’s easy to overlook the valuable lessons in survival that nature still has to offer our societal and technical advancements. “Winter, The Dolphin That Could”, is an inspiring film of a dolphin that was rescued from the near death of being entangled in a crab trap off Cape Canaveral. The recounting of this true story reminds us of the amazing miracles that abound from the shear will to survive - against all odds - and a little help from our friends.
