Due to the large diversity of animals we treat at Clearwater Marine Aquarium, such as sea turtles, river otters, fish, stingrays, and sharks, we often have to adapt our procedures to meet the needs of a specific species. Routine procedures and examinations can pose obvious challenges when dealing with animals that do not breathe air—such as fish and stingrays.
Clearwater Marine Aquarium is rehabilitating our smallest rescue yet: Frito the tiny seahorse. Frito was rescued June 10 off Redington Shores, FL
An otter kit (baby otter) was rescued Sunday evening, January 28, 2018, after a resident found the otter kit in their backyard. The resident removed the animal from the yard, placed it in a box, and then contacted the Clearwater Marine Aquarium (CMA) Rescue Team.
