Dolphins Plus is heartbroken to announce that on January 18th, 2010, Castaway, our deaf Offshore Atlantic Bottlenose dolphin, passed away.
Our staff feels blessed to have known her. Castaway taught us more than we ever thought possible about training, veterinary medicine, and unique behavior of Offshore Atlantic Bottlenose dolphins. In the short time that she was with us Castaway provided our animal training staff a first hand education in unique husbandry practices, brand new training techniques, and the importance of patience and understanding. Thank you, Castaway, for teaching us to think outside the box. You will be forever loved and missed."
