In January, SeaWorld and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission rescued a 7-foot-long manatee that was suffering from a collapsed lung due to a boat strike. The animal was having a difficult time staying afloat, so the SeaWorld team created a special “manatee wetsuit” to assist with buoyancy. The experts at SeaWorld are continuing to monitor his health in hopes of returning him to the wild. #365DaysOfRescue

    Very good, what about the whales and dolphins?

Chloe, a barred owl, was found when she was only a few months old at a park in Christmas, Florida eating lunch meat out of people's hands. Her actions led rescuers to believe she was most likely hand raised and would be unable to hunt for food on her own. #365DaysOfRescue

SeaWorld's rescue team found this Guadalupe fur seal dehydrated and malnourished last fall. After several months of rehabilitative care, she was returned to the wild.

In honor of ‪#‎ManateeAppreciationDay‬, we are highlighting today's return of Streak the manatee, the 26th return this year!

After a quick recovery (and gaining 100 pounds), he was healthy enough to be returned to his original home at Blue Springs State Park in Florida! ‪#‎365DaysOfRescue‬
