The Shedd Aquarium in Chicago is known for entertaining guests and tourists from around the world. But the Shedd does more than just show off marine life, it also rescues and rehabilitates marine animals. Members of Shedd regularly go to Sausalito, Calif. to rescue animals with the Marine Mammal Center. Once they bring the animals back to the Shedd, staff members teach the animals survival skills. The Shedd's most recent arrival, a sea lion named Cruz, was blinded by bullet fragments. Trainers at the Shedd taught him how to live his life without his sight.
