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
