Happy Birthday, Foster!

Published September 09, 2008

Foster, an Atlantic bottlenose dolphin calf born at the Aquarium on September 9, 2007, is one year old today! The dolphin trainers held a small birthday party for Foster, presenting him with special toys and plenty of well wishes. Foster’s mom, Jade, and a few other dolphins even joined in the fun! Click here to see the video! Visitors will have the opportunity to share in the celebration this week during dolphin shows and can purchase special birthday cupcakes at the Aquariums' cafes through Sunday, September 14. For each cupcake sold, $.50 will go toward purchasing enrichment items for Foster and friends! Daily enrichment and play is an important part of a dolphin’s life at the Aquarium. For more information on how you can donate items to the Aquarium's animals, visit www.aqua.org/donate.
