Smooshi and Phil

As you know, we are always on the look-out for cool Gen Y leaders.

One that has grabbed my attention and warmed my heart is the story of Smooshi and Phil.

Smooshi is a 5-year old female walrus at Marineland in Niagra Falls.  Phil is Phil Demers, age 29, who is her trainer. 

At 18 months of age, Smooshi bonded to Phil as if he was her mother.  The two have made the news, and the story is really incredible and is baffling to animal behaviorists.
