    The Miami Seaquarium needs your help in naming another baby dolphin!

    The newest addition to the pod was born on Aug. 2 to Top Deck Dolphin resident Rioux.

    To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the "Flipper" TV series, which was filmed at the Seaquarium, the park is asking the public to help name the baby dolphin by pledging to "Flip it Forward" with a random act of kindness by Sept. 15.

    The winner will be randomly selected to choose from four names - Bali, Eclipse, Corona and Storm - and will receive four VIP park tickets.

    The dolphin's name will be announced on Sept. 19, the anniversary of when the "Flipper" series first aired.
