Welcome our new manatees!

In December we received two new manatees into our facility for rehabilitation. Cannoli, a coldstunned orphan from the Sanibel – San Carlos Bay area, and Alpine, a cold-stunned orphan from
the Crystal River area. Both were rescued by Zoo Tampa. Cannoli and Alpine will remain here at
Aquarium Encounters until they are at a healthy and releasable weight. While under the care of our
team, the two manatees will receive checkups from our veterinarians to ensure they are making
progress on their rehabilitation journey. Interested in helping Cannoli and Alpine? You can donate
to our 501©(3) non-profit organization, R3EACH where you can help to aid in the research, rescue,
and rehabilitation of animals like Cannoli and Alpine
