Manatees Update: SwimShady, Alby & Manhattan did great on their journey back to FL! They arrived at SeaWorld Orlando on a beautiful sunny day, started eating & checked out their temp home. They joined 5 other males who will be returning to the wild with them in early 2023. pic.twitter.com/19pIcP3sPk

Ich bin gerade etwas enttäuscht darüber, dass es dort draußen ein Manatee namens SwimShady gibt, von dem ich bisher nichts wusste – und vor allem dass mich darüber bis heute noch keiner in Kenntnis gesetzt hat! Was soll denn das?

SwimShady, Alby & Manhattan are ready to return to FL. The primary goal was to get them big & strong enough to return to their native waters. Since arriving, they’ve consumed about 166,158 lbs of food & gained a combined total of about 1000 lbs! Nineteen manatees rehabilitated at the Cincinnati Zoo have returned to Florida waters, and Alby, Manhattan, and SwimShady will be released after they become reacclimated at one of the care facilities in Florida. The goal of the Manatee Rescue Partnership is to rescue, rehabilitate, and release manatees, and we’re honored to play a role in this important conservation work.
