Baby Dolphin at Big Island Resort

October 12, 2010 By: Jena Tesse Fox

Animals can be cute, but baby animals are even cuter. Fans of the cuteness will want to visit Dolphin Quest Hawaii at Hilton Waikoloa Village on Hawaii's Big Island, where a healthy dolphin calf was born in August to Pele, a 25-year-old Atlantic bottlenose dolphin who is also mother to daughter Keo, son Makana, and son Hua.

As the first few months of a young dolphin's life are critical, Dolphin Quest's marine mammal specialists will monitor Pele and her calf regularly. Mother and the calf are observed from above and below the water. Nursing frequency and duration, respiration rates, and swimming patterns are recorded and monitored.

Since Dolphin Quest Hawaii opened at Hilton Waikoloa Village in 1988, 16 healthy calves have been born on site, creating the family of 11 dolphins currently residing at Hilton Waikoloa Village.
