Spring is in the air. Flowers are blooming, the grass is turning green and Discovery Cove is welcoming a new baby dolphin to the family. Thelma, an Atlantic bottlenose dolphin at the park, gave birth to a baby dolphin Tuesday, April 20. This is the 22nd dolphin born at Discovery Cove since the park opened in 2000.
Discovery Cove and its parent company, SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment, has one of the most successful dolphin breeding programs in the world with 130 dolphins born and currently living at the parks.
