Dolphins displaced by Katrina get new home - Science -

"Sixteen dolphins from a marine park that was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina -- including several that were swept out to the Gulf of Mexico and later rescued -- have been moved to a resort in the Bahamas.

The dolphins, which have been housed at temporary locations around the country, were transported to Mobile, Ala., and loaded onto an airplane for the final stage of their trip, officials said.

Another dolphin was left behind because she is ill, said Stacey Coltraine, a former trainer of the dolphins, and will be flown to the Bahamas when she is healthy."

    I think it is so great that people are thinking about these dolphins. I glad that the dedicated people mentioned are so kind and some of the best people. And, in my opinion, they are so fortunate to be able to do this. I wish so much that I could be with them
