SeaWorld animal care specialists are a little bleary-eyed this week as they provide 24-hour care for a weeks-old, baby manatee. Orphaned by her mother, the female calf arrived at the park's rehabilitation center on July 24 after being rescued from the waters of Daytona Beach, Fla. Every three hours the 3½-foot and 41-pound orphan is bottled-fed with the park's nutrient-rich baby formula that promotes weight gain. Her weight is taken every other day as animal care specialists closely monitor her progress. She remains in guarded condition and park veterinarians hope to eventually return her back to the wild. The animal was transported to SeaWorld by the Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission. SeaWorld is the global leader in the rescue and rehabilitation of manatees. The park's Animal Rescue Team is on call 365 days a year and 24 hours a day. Video courtesy of and copyright by SeaWorld.
The four young manatees brought to the Columbus Zoo on April 6 for rehabilitation after they were rescued in Florida can now be seen at the Zoos Manatee Coast. Even though an average manatee can weigh more than 1000 lbs. they have very little body fat to keep them warm and it is difficult for a manatee to survive in water when the temperature is below 68 degrees. In cold water the manatees metabolism slows leading to digestion problems, decreased appetite, and associated weight loss which weakens their immune systems and makes them vulnerable to environmental toxins resulting in infections and skin sores. It has been a difficult year for endangered manatees due to prolonged, record low temperatures in Florida resulting in the vast majority of the more than 450 manatee deaths and more than 50 manatees rescued in the first three months of 2010. That total breaks the annual record of 429 manatee deaths in all of 2009. Collisions with boats also pose a major threat to manatees, whose natural habitat is Floridas slow moving rivers and shallow coastal areas. At the end of 2009 there were approximately 3800 manatees. The Columbus Zoo and Aquarium supports field conservation projects for three of the four living species of manatees through our Conservation Fund. Providing grants to researchers on three continents (North America, South America, and Africa), the Zoo contributes to rescue and rehabilitation in Florida, environmental education focused on the Amazonian manatee in ...
