Satellite Beach Manatee Rescue Update

SeaWorld released a great short video on their recent rescue of a juvenile female calf from a culvert near Satellite Beach, FL last week. The subadult was rescued for cold stress.  You can see some of the white shading, almost chalk-like, across the skin of her flipper that occurs during cold stress.

What I really love about this clip is that its a great, and rare, glimpse into SeaWorld’s veterinary services and some of their diagnostic tests including x-rays.  We hear about rescue operations quite often, but we don’t usually see anything released publicly about the process of rescue and rehabilitation programs.
