Each day is a milestone in a young dolphin’s life. From their first breath to realizing there’s a world outside of the water, those of us who work with them are blessed to witness many of life’s small experiences. The two most recent additions to the DRC family have made huge strides over the past six months, especially Merina’s little girl Windley.
|Can you see Windley's teeny tiny flipper waving hello!? So cute!!|
By watching her mother take part in sessions, Windley has taken major steps to show off how quickly she tries new things. Just the other day, a cameraman came by the lagoon and Windley kept one eye on him the entire time. Windley came up in front of the camera and began to spit, something she could have only picked up from watching her mom or aunt. Then when she was waved to, she picked up her tiny pectoral flipper and did a mild wave back. Her mom, who has always showed a real interest in cameras herself, proudly swam around as her daughter showed off.
