Calypso was rescued by the Riverhead Foundation for Marine Research and Preservation Riverhead, NY in 2000 after stranding in the Long Island Sound with an infected front left flipper, which was later amputated to prevent the spread of infection to healthy tissue.
When rescued, she weighed just 6 pounds and was believed to be approximately 2 to 3 years old.
