STUART, Fla. (AP) - Wildlife officials will be releasing a manatee treated for several boat-related injuries back into the wild.
Staff from the Fish and Wildlife Research Institute, the research arm of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, will be on hand Tuesday for the release. Also in attendance will be staff from the Miami Seaquarium, where the manatee was taken for rehabilitation, and the Sea to Shore Alliance.
Wildlife officials rescued the juvenile male last January in Stuart. He will be released Tuesday near the same area where he was found.
