Meet Teresa

Teresa was one of the dominant females and together with Annie the pioneer of the Open Water Program in 2004.

She was a very beautiful and large dolphin and respected by the other dolphins. She was a sweet and caring mother for her daughter Kayena. Teresa was venturous and eager to learn new behaviors. She had a very unique scream which we can still hear because her daughter Kayena has imitated that unique sound and made it her own.

Unfortunately Teresa passed away in January 2010 but her presence will remain in her offspring Kayena for many more years to come and also through all the beautiful memories Teresa created not only for Dolphin Academy but for all the visitors that had the pleasure to meet her.
