Meet Avery

Meet Your Area Dolphins

This adult female has been very productive over the last decade and a half. She currently has a 2 1/2-year-old calf named 360 by her side, but that might not be the case much longer. Young dolphins will stay with their mothers for three to four years. Our team has noticed that Avery is giving this calf a longer range to feed away from her in recent months. This could be an indication that Avery is pregnant, preparing 360 for that crucial time when it goes out on its own.

Avery is also the mother of Lucky Charm, Aubrey and Anji, all doing well in our Marco waters.
