Another reason I love SeaWorld.

SeaWorld animal care specialist Devi Wise bottle-feeds a days-old orphan manatee today at the parks’ Manatee Rescue and Rehabilitation Center. The female calf — just two-feet long and barely tipping the scale at 21 pounds — was rescued from Ormond Beach Wednesday July 23. She is the third orphan manatee in two months to come under the watchful care of SeaWorld “moms” and “dads.”

So far in 2008, SeaWorld has rescued 16 manatees and released 6 back into the wild.
