Latest Manatee Update

December 2, 2020:

Save the Manatee Club conducted a Giving Tuesday fundraiser yesterday that was very successful. As a part of it, Cora and I did a livestream from the park during manatee roll call. My part ended when the roll call was over at 9:00 a.m. Cora stayed the entire day. The marvelous success of the fund drive was darkened when Cora discovered a manatee had died in the run during the day. We do not know the cause of death at this time. It was not a Save the Manatee Club adoptee. Today has been much happier. The river is down to 63° F (17° C), and we counted 114 manatees. There were more, but the wind was still blowing and the waters of the run were murky, so I’m sure we missed a few. Sixty-one manatees were ID’d. We saw Gator, Una, Phyllis with calf, and Lily. Lily was in the boil — something we cannot remember happening before! — Wayne Hartley, Manatee Specialist, and Cora Berchem, Director of Multimedia & Manatee Research Associate.
