Mississippi Aquarium Welcomes Dolphins to Their Campus

Gulfport, MS - Mississippi Aquarium recently welcomed four male Atlantic bottlenose dolphins to campus. The dolphins arrived safely and are comfortably acclimating to their new habitat. The dolphins will remain in an area of the habitat to ensure they adapt properly to their new home. Our highly qualified and experienced veterinary and dolphin teams will continue to monitor them closely and continue to provide exceptional care.

All of the dolphins that now call Mississippi Aquarium home were born in accredited U.S. aquariums and are accustomed to a safe, comfortable life in human care.
