I got to assist with the rescue and transport of a young male manatee this afternoon! He hadn't left Three Sisters Springs in approximately two weeks, and was showing signs of cold stress and possible malnourishment. Myself and the other interns observed him behaving erratically over the weekend so we alerted law enforcement. He was taken just down the road to Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park for evaluation and rehab. He was estimated to weigh ~650 pounds and measured 8' 4". Can this be my job already? πŸ’• #hireme #plz

This is Little Sister spring at Three Sisters, and it is my favorite one because moms and calves show a preference for resting here compared to the other two. Had to take a pause here during my 7:30am count just to take in all the sweetness. It's kind of insane how many times I say "oh my gosh" while I'm at work. So many chunky babes! #threesisterssprings

Me, drowning in data entry and analysis. πŸ˜… #justkeepswimmin #savethamanatee

This afternoon I interviewed for a sea turtle position with National Park Service in St. Croix. Probably not my best interview ever, given that the phone call came out of the blue and I happened to be at the shop with my Jeep that decided to have an issue during my 70-mile commute from my manatee job, but I'm hopeful! 🐒 Photo of a leatherback hatchling by @brianskerry, taken in St. Croix.
