Animal care staff from The Bishop Museum of Science and Nature released two manatees, another successful release that will allow the two female manatees to return to the wild with the hope that someday they might help sustain and build the manatee population. “It was great being able to get Felicia and Viva back to the wild,” said Virginia Edmonds, Director of Animal Care for The Bishop. "While they are a little too immature to reproduce at this time, we hope now that they’re back in the wild, they’ll continue to grow in size and experience to become successful mothers in the future.”
