SRQ DAILY WEDNESDAY PHILANTHROPY EDITION WEDNESDAY NOV 25, 2020

Manatee Awareness Month certainly brought something to celebrate as Mote returned Doscal to the wild on Thursday, November 19, from Horton Park in Cape Coral. Doscal was a young orphaned, emaciated calf weighing just under 400 pounds when he was rescued from the Orange River in Fort Myers and taken to SeaWorld for initial treatment in April 2019. He came to The Bishop’s Parker Manatee Rehabilitation Habitat in December 2019 and, by the time of his release on Thursday, he weighed 656 pounds. "We’re very happy to see Doscal return to the wild,” said Virginia Edmonds, Director of Animal Care. “The tag will allow us to monitor his progress and we feel like he will do great!”
