Not really a surprise since they ended the dolphin show a few years ago...

 

That said, aren't bottlenose dolphins the species that you occasionally see down at Ocean City, Fenwick, etc.? I wonder what the advantages of setting up a reserve down in the Caribbean vs. up here is.

Maybe it needs to be down there for the water temp to be right year-round... I'm guessing the ones you see at OC aren't there in February...

The habitat presumably will be defined by nets... to keep them from escaping out into the wild... I wish we had cracked the code for dolphin-talk... because you know some real-world dolphins are gonna be on the other side of the net, asking the Aquarium  dolphins why they can't come out and play... I'd like to know what they're telling each other...

 

I hope there's no trash talking...
