SeaWorld Orlando's Animal Team Helps Lil Joe the Manatee Find His New Home
SeaWorld Orlando's animal care team assisted Lil Joe the manatee back into the waters of Lake Dexter in Astor, Fla.
7:00 a.m. -- The 1,515-pound Lil Joe was lifted by a heavy-duty crane from his three-month home at SeaWorld Orlando into a truck for transport to Lake Dexter.
9:00 a.m. -- SeaWorld's animal care team and Lil Joe arrive at Lake Dexter. The animal care team fitted Lil Joe with a tracking device, so that his health can constantly be monitored.
10:00 a.m. -- Not-so-little Lil Joe was loaded into SeaWorld's animal rescue boat. It took more than eight people to lift him only a few inches!
10:30 a.m. -- Lil Joe was released into Lake Dexter where several other manatees already live and will help him get acclimated. He's already doing well as he started nibbling on nearby vegetation, which is a good sign.
If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
there is something you must always remember.
You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.
Winne the Pooh - A A Milne
A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
no matter how close or far apart you may be.
A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.
