A young manatee, who was recently rehabilitated and released, drags a tracker. The tracker is so Wildlife Management can keep an eye on the manatee, to be sure it is able to survive. The manatee will drag the tracker for about a year. The line attached to the manatee will eventually disintegrate, and the manatee will no longer be followed.

    Just like the incubators in the maternity ward at the hospital. Well done, Judy

    The manatees don't seem to be bothered by it. Several have gotten into difficulty and were saved due to wearing these trackers. One was stuck in the mud. When they saw that she had not moved in about an hour, wildlife experts went to here and released her. After being in captivity for awhile, it can take them a little time to readjust to being independent.

    Awesome capture through the water. It's wonderful to have wildlife experts tagging the critters when they need to be looked after for a while. This one was lucky to have the tracker on and got help!
