Governed by a non-profit organisation, the aquarium is a shelter for sick and/or injured marine animals such as dolphins, sea turtles and others. The organisation's objective is to provide rehabilitation to the animals and release them to their habitats afterwards. It became notable after the screening of 'A Dolphin Tale' in 2011. The movie depicts the story of Winter, a dolphin who lost her tail in a crab trap, and was given a prosthetic one by the Clearwater Aquarium.
