WAIKOLOA, Hawaii, Sept. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Lehua the dolphin celebrated her one-year birthday Tuesday (September 17, 2013) at Dolphin Quest Hawaii, located at the Hilton Waikoloa Village.
Last year, Lehua's incredible birth video touched the hearts and minds of millions after debuting on YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6jCJiO75pxo). The crystal clear underwater footage documented the fascinating first moments of the young calf's life. Lehua's mom, Keo, was also born at Dolphin Quest Hawaii, making Lehua Dolphin Quest's first second-generation calf.
Dolphin Quest Hawaii trainers and some lucky young guests joined in Lehua's birthday fun and festivities on Tuesday. Lehua was greeted with a chorus of "Happy Birthday", and a delicious birthday treat. The adorable kids who participated in the event had the opportunity to meet young Lehua while learning about dolphins and ocean conservation. Video of Lehua's birthday celebration can be seen on Dolphin Quest's YouTube channel and on their Facebook page in a segment called the "Dolphin Calf Chronicles".
"Lehua is an amazing ambassador, inspiring guests from all over the world to be passionate about dolphins and their ocean environment," says Lauren Prutow-McKenna, senior dolphin trainer at Dolphin Quest.
According to Tim Murphy, General Manager of Dolphin Quest Hawaii, "Lehua's birthday is not only a celebration of an incredible dolphin, but it is also a testament to the top-notch animal and veterinary caretakers who ensure that all of our dolphins are well-loved and well-cared for at Dolphin Quest."
Residents of Hawaii and military personnel who would like to wish Lehua "Happy Birthday" in person can enjoy a special 15% discount on select dolphin interaction programs through the end of the year. Reservations can be made by calling Dolphin Quest or visiting the Dolphin Quest Web site.
Dolphin Quest is an international organization known for its creative approach to education, its commitment to ocean wildlife research, its exemplary animal health care and its successful breeding programs. The innovative encounter programs featured at the Dolphin Quest locations in Hawaii and Bermuda promote a spirit of connection to the marvels of the oceans.
