Unfortunately we have some sad news to report. On Friday, our Stranding Response Program recovered a deceased manatee. We believe it is the same manatee spotted in December near the mouth of Rudee Inlet. 💔💔💔 ... See MoreSee Less

Poor thing. Are we seeing an increase in the number of manatees here in the area or is it still a phenomenon and maybe the result of getting caught in the Gulf Stream?

Such beautiful creatures...

Oh no ! So sad to hear this .... I just knew it was too cold for him to be here 😔😔😔😔😔

Will they do an autopsy to see what cause of death was?

So very sad💔. Such sweet animals.

Where was the manatee recovered? Apologies if this was already answered.

That’s so sad!

SOOOOOO SAD! 😭😭😭
