When a young dolphin lost its tail in a fishing accident, an aquarium and prosthetics company teamed up to build her a new one. Jorge Ribas meets Winter the dolphin, who stars in the new movie about her rescue.

Fox 13, our Fox affiliate here in Tampa Bay recently interviewed Winter’s trainer Abby Stone on what it took to become a dolphin trainer, and more importantly, the path that led her to become Winter’s trainer here at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium.
