Four orphaned manatee calves continue to receive around-the-clock care from the SeaWorld Animal Care Team after being rescued due to abandonment by their mothers for unknown reasons. The four calves, who range in age from only a couple months old to about six months, were rescued at independent times over the past year.

The oldest calf, a 113-pound female, was rescued this past May when she was found without her mother at only a few weeks of age. Since her arrival at the park, the young female has gained 45 pounds and her health continues to improve.

In early July, this female was joined by a second calf, an emaciated male, who weighed only 40 pounds upon arrival at the park. The young manatee has gained a significant amount of weight since his rescue, currently weighing nearly 90 pounds.

Another orphaned calf was brought to SeaWorld in September after being found dehydrated and very thin. Since his rescue, this male has gained nearly 30 pounds and currently weighs over 90 pounds.

The most recent calf, a nearly 90-pound male, was transported to the park just over a week ago. The two-month-old continues to receive tube feedings and is making progress in his health as he battles buoyancy and digestive issues.

Providing care for these manatee calves requires attention 24 hours a day, seven days a week by our Animal Care Specialists. Three of the calves receive bottle feedings seven times each day while the youngest continues to be tube fed as he begins his transition to bottle feedings.

The calves receive a formula specially created by SeaWorld Orlando’s Animal Care Specialists that closely replicates the nutritional qualities of manatee milk. Over the years, the formula continues to be developed and improved and can even be adapted to meet each calf’s individual nutritional needs.

The Animal Care team remains cautiously optimistic about the future of these four calves. The goal of the SeaWorld Rescue and Rehabilitation Program is to always return animals back into their natural environment, but there are certain times when injuries may be too severe or the animal may have been rescued too young to be successfully returned.

SeaWorld Orlando works closely with government agencies, including Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and U.S. Fish and Wildlife, to determine when, and if, rescued animals can be returned.

So far in 2013, SeaWorld has rescued 16 and returned 8 manatees back to their natural environment. In collaboration with the government and other members of accredited stranding networks, SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment operates one of the world’s most respected programs to rescue ill and injured marine animals, with the goal to rehabilitate and return to the ocean. SeaWorld animal experts have helped more than 22,000 animals in need – ill, injured, orphaned and abandoned – for more than 40 years.
