New sponsor: Clearwater Marine Aquarium, currently the site of production of "Dolphin's Tale", the story of Winter, the dolphin who lost his tale but who now sets an example for recovery with a prosthetic tale allowing him to live a normal life at the Aquarium.

Winter inspires both disabled children and soldiers. His story will star Ashley Judd, Harry Connick Jr. and Morgan Freeman. Thanks to Aquarium CEO Dave Yates for taking time to help spread the word about our important forum on our Gulf of Mexico and its recovery from injuries suffered from the oil disaster.
