SeaWorld actually doesn't own any of he manitees. The Department of Fish and Game has asked that they be retuned to Florida. Initially the Dept had asked SeaWold to place the wounded manetee in th SW recovery program. I can undersand the one that has sinve recovered being released back into the ocean. But, why move the two poor wounded ones back to Florida?... I'm assuming to another recovery facility? After al the love and care that SeaWorld San Diego as given these intelligent and gentle animals, this is a fine "thank you" from Fish and Game.
Hope that SeaWorld aquires manatees their own in the future. The public beneftes greatly from bing in contact with any and all forms of marine life. This builds upon an educated and loving respect for animal life on ur planet, as wel as the protection o ur eco system.
