Manatee Mom and Calf Get a Second Chance

Jul 12, 2016


Two endangered manatees have a second chance at life in the wild after critical care at the Manatee Hospital at Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo. A manatee mother and her dependent calf were rescued March 15, 2016 in waters near Tarpon Springs after the mother was injured in a watercraft collision. “Shamrock,” a 810-pound female, arrived with a pneumothorax injury (collapsed lung) which healed after three months of care. Her dependent calf, “Emerald,” a healthy 335-pound female, accompanied her. The pair returned to Tarpon Springs waters on  June 23, 2016 at Spring Bayou, winter home to numerous manatees.

To date, the Manatee Hospital at Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo has taken in more than 400 wild manatees for critical care for a variety of severe illnesses and catastrophic injuries including boat strikes, cold stress, orphans, entanglement and red tide exposure. Of those, more than 230 have survived and been returned to Florida waters.

    Users; paying little mind to reaching Facebook user support helpdesk group, continue getting bothered as they don't know about the techniques to recoup Hacked Facebook account. They attempt a few strategies to recoup traded off Facebook account yet every one of their endeavors go futile. It's truly weird to state that individuals who continue getting to Facebook account once in a while as the day progressed, don't know about the means to recuperate Hacked Facebook account. In spite of the fact that directions are given by Facebook to the accommodation of clients to perform hacked Facebook account recuperation, however not very many of them can execute required advances adjusted inside the techniques.
