SeaWorld Releases Rehabbed Manatee

Caleb the manatee is checked out by SeaWorld's animal care experts before his release.

Caleb, a 690-pound manatee, was released at Blue Springs State Park this week by SeaWorld’s animal care experts.

Caleb was found at Blue Springs suffering from cold stress when he was brought to SeaWorld by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission back in January. At the time he weighed 460 pounds and had gained 230 pounds by the time of his release.

SeaWorld’s animal rescue team is on call 24/7 to save and care for injured, orphaned or ill animals including manatees such as Caleb.
