While these younglings continue their growth, they’ll receive meticulous care from SeaWorld’s Aquarium Team at the Aquarium Health Center, remaining behind the scenes as they grow and develop under world-class supervision.
Manatee Rescue: Clarity
At the request of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and with the support of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) and other members of the Manatee Rescue & Rehabilitation Partnership SeaWorld achieved the safe relocation of the female manatee, Clarity, on December 5th. She was transported to SeaWorld Orlando which has one of the largest critical care facilities for manatees in the country. This operation was deemed necessary by authorities for her long-term welfare and is a result of months of careful planning and preparation with various wildlife agencies.
We have more than 50 years of manatee care experience and our compassionate and dedicated team is doing everything we can to help her return to optimal health at which time wildlife authorities will review her case and determine best placement for her at another facility. Until then, she is resting comfortably in our medical pool under the continuous care of our veterinary and manatee specialist team.
