The star of the the 2011 film Dolphin Tale – Winter the Dolphin – has served as an inspiration for entire communities. After being caught in a crab trap, Winter lost her tail and was taken to the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, where she was fitted with a silicone and plastic tail that enabled her to swim normally. Check out how her story of resilience, persistence, and courage has inspired people all over the world!
