Clearwater Marine Aquarium
« on: April 28, 2010, 06:24:25 PM »
The Clearwater Marine Aquarium is located off of the Clearwater Beach Causeway (Rt. 60) between Clearwater Beach and downtown Clearwater.  Take the big bridge from downtown Clearwater and turn right at the first traffic light.  If you get to the round-a-bout in Clearwater Beach at Pier 60, then you've gone too far, so go back!  LOL!

The main attraction is Winter the Dolphin who lost her tail when she was 3 months old.  She was entangled in the rope for a crab trap.  The people at the Aquarium created a prosthetic tail for her, so she can swim normally.  The Aquarium just built a larger tank for Winter, so people have been flocking to see her in her new surroundings. 

The Aquarium also rescues, rehabs and then releases sea turtles who need their help.  They were very busy this past winter because we had the 2nd coldest winter on record.  The sea turtles had a tough time surviving the 10 days in a row of record cold temperatures we had, and many of the turtles were brought here so they could survive.  Many turtles recovered and they were released recently.
