FWC rescues abandoned manatee calf found in Caloosahatchee River

A manatee calf was recently spotted swimming alone in the Caloosahatchee River.

The Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) was called by a concerned resident who lives in front of the water where the baby was seen.

After waiting a day to make sure the mother manatee was not nearby feeding, FWC crews rescued the calf with a hoop net.

The male calf was measured at 3.8 feet long. He was transported to Seaworld Orlando for rehabilitation, according to FWC.

In a facebook post, FWC reported the baby is starting to gain weight and is doing very well.
