MARATHON, Fla. — Military veterans and their families are streaming their sessions online to continue to interact with dolphins in the Florida Keys.

On Thursday, the Dolphin Research Center in Marathon, Florida, held an online interactive session due to COVID-19 concerns.

The learning opportunity is part of the Wounded Warrior project's ongoing peer support group activities for veterans.

Through video streaming, the veterans and their families learned about two dolphins that were rescued after suffering physical injuries in the wild.

A dolphin trainer shared facts, stories and hand signals for each dolphin, and participants were able to ask real-time questions.
