Last week members of the SeaWorld Rescue Team headed to South Carolina where they partnered with multiple organizations to asist in the rescue and relocation of a large male manatee.  Once rescued the manatee was taken to the Jacksonville Zoo where it is being treated for cold stress.

SeaWorld has long been committed to animal rescue and conservation.  The SeaWorld rescue team is on call 24/7, 365 days a year, giving endangered and threatened marine animals a second chance at life. Throughout its 50 years, SeaWorld has rescued more than 33,000 wild animals in need including those that are ill, injured, orphaned or abandoned. The ultimate goal for every rescued animal is to rehabilitate and return them to their natural environment as soon as possible. This year alone the SeaWorld Rescue Team has rescued 69 manatees and returned 23, many after successful rehabilitation.

Manatees are not equipped to survive in cold water and can experience distress in water less than 68 degrees Fahrenheit. The public is encouraged to report any additional manatee sightings to the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources at:  dnr.sc.gov/manatee/.
