Latest Manatee Update

April 6, 2021:

The cold front seems to be over and the river is warming up. It was 70.7° F (21.5° C) this morning, and Cora counted five manatees. Three of them were down by the river and none of them were adoptees.

The park opened today for the public to enjoy swimming and paddling again, so manatee season seems to pretty much have come to an end. Our webcams will be playing pre-recorded highlights from now on until the next manatee season starts in November! — Wayne Hartley, Manatee Specialist, and Cora Berchem, Director of Multimedia & Manatee Research Associate.
