For the love of dolphins

The marine mammal trainers were excited to welcome world figure skating champion, Kimmie Meissner, to the Aquarium yesterday! A Maryland native and a huge fan of the Aquarium, Kimmie volunteered her time to be a part of the new dolphin show video. Yesterday she spent time learning what it takes to become a dolphin trainer, and got up close and personal with some of the Aquarium’s dolphins.kimmie-m-filming-small2

As a child Kimmie loved visiting the Aquarium and she still has a strong love for animals. At one point she thought about becoming a marine biologist, but has decided to major in exercise science at the University of Delaware. 

 She is very excited about the new show and the message it sends to young people who are fascinated by dolphins!

    Very cool. I’m glad to see a local celebrity linked up with the Aquarium. My family is looking forward to our next visit – we haven’t been in about a year, so we are definitely overdue.

    As a figure skater I think it couldn’t be a better combination, Figure Skating and the NAIB dolphins! XD
