Magic is a four-year-old male Atlantic bottle nose dolphin that lives at Brookfield Zoo in Chicago, Illinois.
When Magic was born on October 28, 2013, at Brookfield Zoo's Seven Seas, his inexperienced first time mother, Spree did not provide adequate maternal care. Concerned about the wellbeing of the calf, animal care team members made the decision to provide Magic with necessary neonatal care, which meant providing around the clock care to Magic for several months. Magic successfully reached several important milestones-eating solid food on his own, and being introduced to other dolphins in the group-is due to the dedication, knowledge and extraordinary efforts of the Chicago Zoological Society's animal care team.
