Eight Dolphins of Katrina
A True Tale of SurvivalBook - 2013
On August 29, 2005, Hurricane Katrina crashed a forty-foot tidal wave over the Marine Life Oceanarium in Gulfport, Mississippi. The dolphin house was demolished, and its inhabitants swept from their tank into the Gulf of Mexico. After growing up in captivity, how could the eight bottlenose dolphins feed and protect themselves in the wild? And if they could survive, would their trainers ever see them again? This fascinating picture book--enriched with both beautiful color-wash illustrations and photographs taken by the trainers themselves--tells this dramatic, happy-ending story.
