New Baby Dolphin …… Chopper…..

Gulf World Marine Park is proud to announce the birth of a male Atlantic Bottlenose Dolphin. Maia gave birth at 10:05 a.m. on Tuesday, September 21, 2011. This calf is a second generation dolphin born here at Gulf World Marine Park. Maia, also born at Gulf World, is a first time mom.

The calf’s father is here on breeding loan from Sea World. Both Sea World and Gulf World are part of the Alliance of Marine Mammal Parks and Aquarium Breeding Loan Program. Gulf World has a male dolphin at the Mirage in Las Vegas who fathered a newborn calf born three weeks ago. Maia and her newborn calf are being observed 24 hours a day. First time dolphin mothers have a low success rate, therefore the first 30 days is a very crucial time period for the new calf.  Gulf World’s veterinarian and marine mammal staff will continue to monitor both dolphins very closely for the next few weeks.
