Aquarium from Carnival of the Animals by Camille Saint-Saens

The Louisiana Marine Mammal and Sea Turtle Rescue Program, coordinated by the Audubon Aquarium of the Americas, is the primary responder for the rescue, rehabilitation and release of all marine mammals along the Louisiana coast. These include dolphins, whales, manatees and sea turtles--lucky enough to be found. There is still much work to be done to secure their well-being, safety, and legacy.
