Today's winner is Benjamin K. from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania! CONGRATULATIONS BENJAMIN! You have won our Behind the Scenes Dolphin experience! To get any closer, you would actually have to be an Atlantic bottlenose dolphin! On this amazing experience you will go on a private meet and greet with the Aquarium’s eight dolphins as well as a tour the dolphin areas. You'll get to see how National Aquarium staff prepare their food, check out the dolphin’s extensive toy collection and learn behind the scenes secrets from our trainers! You will also get to work with a trainer during a dolphin training session, learn how to communicate with the animals, and participate in enrichment and play activities!
