Discovery Cove welcomes a new dolphin calf to the pod, and wants you to help name the new baby girl!

Discovery Cove is an all-inclusive day resort where you and your family can enjoy a one-of-a-kind opportunity to swim with dolphins, and the Orlando attraction has recently welcomed a new dolphin calf.

In the last few days, it was announced that on March 29, Discovery Cove welcomed a new dolphin calf to their dolphin pod.


Damara, a 16 year-old female dolphin.welcomed the healthy calf, a beautiful baby girl. Throughout her pregnancy, veterinarians provided world-class animal care, including frequent sonograms to monitor the calf's growth and development.


Now, the veterinary team has been closely monitoring the baby girl to ensure she’s growing at a healthy rate. The calf receives several regular checkups to study nursing behavior, respiration patterns, as well as bonding-time with Damara (mom).



Discovery Cove now wants you to help name the baby girl, they have shortlisted four names and need you to vote for your favorite.


Like her Mom (Damara), the dolphin calfs name will begin with the letter D.


The names are:

Dylan

Dahlia

Darcy

Daphne

Dorothy


You have from now until June 9 to vote on Discovery Cove's Instagram account, with the winning name announced on June 11.

So when can we get our first look at the new dolphin calf? The all-inclusive resort say that their veterinary team will continue to monitor the calf for important health milestones before she makes her first public apperance in the parks' Dolphin Lagoon.
