Happy ending for rescued manatee

Goodby return shot
This morning, SeaWorld’s Animal Rescue Team returned Goodby, an adult male manatee, to Goodby Creek near Jacksonville. Goodby was rescued due to cold stress in March 2012 from Goodby Creek and had seven months of rehabilitation at SeaWorld. The return of the manatee, who weighs almost 1,000 pounds, was coordinated with the Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission and Sea2Shore alliance, which tagged Goodby for future tracking.
