Cheeno released after rehab at South Florida Museum

Cheeno released after rehab at South Florida Museum

Bradenton, Fl. - A manatee undergoing rehabilitation at South Florida Museum since February of 2012 is back in the wild!

Cheeno was released from the Bishop Manatee Aquarium into the Orange River in Ft. Myers on January 7.  

“Cheeno was tagged with a GPS tracking device and will be monitored for up to a year to make sure he is adjusting well to life in the wild. His release went smoothly - he did a ‘happy to be in water’ tail slap as soon as he was wet and partially submerged in the river’s waters," says Marilyn Margold, the Museum's Director of Living Collections.
