Yet, he now needed a new home. His young age meant he could not be released back into the wild. The orphaned dolphin eventually found a home, located on the crystal clear shores of Panama City Beach, Florida.
"He came in with all these markings on him. So, he had a pretty rough life out there," said Michelle Erwin, a senior trainer at Gulf World Marine Park.
For months, Roux Brees underwent intensive rehabilitation at the Audubon Institute. He was a young orphan and couldn't even swim.
"For it to be thriving the way it is, obviously fighting through a life or death situation that's great to see," Brees said. "It's something that my wife and I feel is part of south Louisiana and, certainly, whe n you talk about what has happened in the recent past with the oil spill and all the people and animals that were affected our involvement with the Audubon Institute was really just to try to jump on board and help them in a way we can."
a seven hour journey, Roux Brees made it to Gulf World Marine Park, a place where he's been taking care of and where he's become a caretaker of sorts.

Scientists remain unsure why so many have died. A bacterial infection, known as Brucellosis, was found in several of them. Whether or not last year's BP Oil Spill compromised the dolphins health or played a role in the deaths is not clear, though.

The park is part of a network in the southeast that tries to save beached marine life. They are also an educational facility. Eventually, Roux Brees will join the other dolphins in teaching visitors about sea life.

Trainers and vets at Gulf World said Roux Brees is learning all about being a dolphin, mainly by watching and interacting with some of the 17 dolphins at the facility.

"He went from being just down and out to being perkier, coming around," said Gomez, after helping care for Roux for months.
Back in Florida, Roux Brees is settling in. Veterinarians say dolphins tend to live longer in captivity than they do in the wild. A dolphin like Roux Brees, who is around 1 to 2 years old, could end up living more than 30 years at Gulf World.
Eventually, Roux Brees got a new lease on life.
