Baron has adopted a 4 Bottlenose Dolphins and 4 California Sea Lions

In support of dolphin & sea lion research, Baron has adopted Delta, Diva and Aleta, a family of three bottlenose dolphins and three California Sea lions Lina, Kilo and Karen at the Dolphin Research Center (DRC), Grassy Key, Florida. As the "parent" of the adopted marine life, Baron provides them with a diet of restaurant quality fish, necessary medicine and vitamins and medical care. Our donation also provides medical equipment and supplies, and helps maintain the DRC family lagoons.


About Delta

Delta - The Bottlenose DolphinDelta, born on November 22, 2009 is the first baby born to Aleta and is 1/2 brother to Pandora, Gambit and Diva. A boisterous typical boy, Delta who's nickname is "Schmelta" loves swimming fast, jumping and playing with balls (especially tossing them over fences!) As a youngster, Delta has difficulty sometimes sitting through “kindergarten class." He enjoys swimming around the lagoon and seeing what everyone else is doing. He sometimes takes another young dolphin with him as he plays hooky!

About Windley, cousin of Diva

Windley - The Bottlenose DolphinSince the day she was born on November 12, 2013, Windley has had an adventurous and friendly spirit. She is often seen playing either with her best friend and cousin, Diva, or on her own using toys in her lagoon. As the youngest daughter of Merina, it’s no surprise that Windley is drop dead gorgeous. (Her father, a SeaWorld Orlando dolphin named Fathom is good looking, too!) She has already learned how to use that to her advantage! Just like her big sisters, Pandora, Calusa, and Cayo, and her older brother Flagler, Windley enjoys fun games and loving from her trainers. She’s a big fan of back rubs, kisses, tongue tickles, and high fives.

About Lina

Lina - The California Sea LionLina, thin and begging from people, was rescued multiple times on the beaches of California. After four attempted releases, it was decided that she needed to be placed up for adoption and DRC became her forever home! Lina is a strong willed, bright little girl, full of personality! She is eager to learn, yet lacks patience, so her training sessions are often short and sweet. She is the smallest of the sea lions, but don’t tell her that!
