Rescued Manatee Baca Returns to the Wild

SRQ DAILY SATURDAY PERSPECTIVES EDITION SATURDAY MAR 23, 2019

The South Florida Museum returned a rescued manatee, Baca, to the wild on March 7 in Brevard County. The manatee spent his initial rehabilitation in a critical care facility and then was moved to South Florida Museum's Stage 2 Rehabilitation Habitat to grow to the right size and weight for release. A check-up in December helped determine that Baca was ready to return home. The Clearwater Marine Research Institute will be tracking Baca’s return to the wild, thanks to Baca's special satellite-linked tag. The tag allows animal biologists to track Baca's movements to ensure he is migrating appropriately and doing well in the wild.
