SeaWorld Animal Rescue Team in Orlando Did it Again!!!!!

I wanted to show my respects and share the good work of SeaWorld's Animal Rescue Team in Orlando who contributed towards the return of several manatee for 2012. It is always a JOY to see how many are involved in this teamwork and helping the environment and its survivors.

 JOB Well Done to the SeaWorld Animal Rescue Team!!!!

SeaWorld Orlando Returns Manatee to Jacksonville Waters After Months of Rehabilitation

Following seven months of rehabilitation at SeaWorld Orlando, SeaWorld’s Animal Rescue Team returned Goodby, an adult male manatee at Goodby Creek near the St. John’s River near Jacksonville, Fla.  SeaWorld worked with the Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission to coordinate this morning’s return, and Sea2Shore alliance was also on site to satellite tag the manatee for future tracking.  The nearly 1,000-pound manatee was rescued due to cold stress in March 2012 from Goodby Creek, where he got his name. 
This was the eighth manatee return of 2012. Since the program’s inception in 1973, SeaWorld has rescued 469 manatees and returned 244 back to their natural habitat. 
For more than 45 years, SeaWorld has helped animals in need -- ill, injured and orphaned. More than 20,000 animals have been rescued by our experts.‪ SeaWorld’s animal rescue team is on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
