Dolphins aren't shy about demanding attention. Pandora screams so loudly, we can hear her throughout DRC!

Farewell to a Dear Family Member

Theresa always made us laugh with the unique "motor boat" sound she made during speed runs.

Dear DRC Friends and Family Members,

With heavy hearts we share the news that earlier today we lost our dear Theresa due to complications of old age. As you know, Theresa was in her mid-to-upper-50s and one of the oldest dolphins in human care. In recent months, we saw signs that her normally robust health was beginning to fade. We monitored her carefully, determined that she was not suffering or in pain, and resolved to continue to support her comfortably and with love. Her death today was peaceful and she was surrounded by loving family members.

We honor her spirit each day by living life to its fullest, as she did every day.

Theresa lived here since 1968, longer than any other dolphin or person, and touched thousands of lives for the better. She will be missed.

We know that you join us in our sorrow.

Editor note: Theresa passed away just as we were going to print with the May/June issue of The Dolphin Society newsletter. There was not time to write a full story about this incomparable dolphin and do her justice. We will pay tribute to Theresa in the July/August issue.

Mother's Day is coming up on Sunday. Perhaps Mom would love a dolphin swim or you could adopt a dolphin for her!
