When you think of manatee migration, you don’t normally picture aircraft.
But that is how Washburn the pregnant manatee was transported from Massachusetts, where she was rescued (just off the coast) to Sea World in Orlando, Florida, where she spent 2 weeks recuperating.
After recovering from cold-related stress, Washburn was found fit to be released back into the waters off the coast of Florida.
See some clips from Washburn’s fetal ultrasound (with a Sonosite Edge II) below!
