A SUMMARY: THE DOLPHIN THAT LOST ITS TAIL

 

 

A dolphin -named Winter- lost her tail through human action. She was caught by a crab trap line and lost her tail while trying to swim away. Scientists found and fed her. Then she started to swim but like no other dolphins. Her swimming style could be harmful to her so scientists decided to solve this problem with a prosthetic tail. This was done by Japanese before but that dolphin lost only a part of her tail. A prosthetic tail could be a solution but it was expensive and difficult to create. Also winter wouldn't swim like other dolphins that meant she would live in an aquarium for her entire life. A lot of different people helped to design the tail. However, all these weren't the real solution. the perfect solution was teaching adults especially fishermen to be more careful.
