Meet Izzy, the aquarium’s newest resident Atlantic bottlenose dolphin! She was rescued near North Padre Island, Texas, in June 2022 after years of illegal human interaction in the wild caused her health to decline. She required intervention, and after CMA was selected as her forever home, she arrived here in November 2022, ready to join the CMA pod and enjoy lots of love and care.

Get up-close to life-size dinosaurs – some as big as 35 feet tall and 65 feet long – at the aquarium’s largest rescue mission ever! They’re all part of Dino Rescue: Rescue, Rehab and Recover From Extinction. As you walk around the aquarium, you’ll meet the dinosaurs, which move and roar, as they rehabilitate from ailments today’s animals face – like habitat loss and entanglement. Rescued dinosaurs will be rehabilitated throughout CMA, where you can learn about these formerly extinct species and help find ways to keep all animals safe in the wild.
CMA is celebrating Peace, Love and Dolphins at their Dolphintopia exhibition. Through art, activities and interactive displays, this immersive experience highlights fascinating scientific facts about dolphins as well as their connection with humans throughout the ages. Dolphintopia is included with general admission.
