Clearwater Marine Aquarium



Clearwater Marine Aquarium® believes in preserving our environment while inspiring the human spirit through leadership in the rescue, rehabilitation and release of marine life; environmental education; research; and conservation. They are a 501(c)(3) organization. The staff and volunteers work each day to rescue marine life and provide the most advanced and effective care to maximize the opporutnity to return sick or injured animals to their homes. The animals that come to the Clearwater Marine Aquarium® arrive because they are suffering from an illness or severe injury. Sometimes if the injuries are so severe or the animal is too young, it would not be in the animal’s best interest to release it back into the wild. If the animal is determined to be unable to be released back into the wild, they become a permanent resident of the aquarium. They educate and inspire millions of people around the world through films like Dolphin Tale and Dolphin Tale 2 where after losing her tail, Winter the dolphin was able to survive with the care and prosthetic Clearwater Marine Aquarium® was able to provide.
