Say Hello to Slate and Obsidian

SCOOP

SRQ DAILY SATURDAY PERSPECTIVES EDITION SATURDAY APR 27, 2019

The Bishop Museum of Science and Nature’s animal care team celebrated the successful move of two new manatees to The Parker Manatee Rehabilitation Habitat, where the animals will finish their recovery before their return to the wild. The manatees, nicknamed Slate and Obsidian, were both orphaned male calves suffering from cold stress when they were rescued. They are to be cared for in The Bishop’s Stage 2 rehabilitation habitat, the place where manatees come after their critical care needs have been met, where they can grow to an appropriate size for release and, if previously injured, continue the healing process.
