Moving the Manatees!


For over ten years now we have assisted Mote Marine Laboratory & Aquarium with lifting their resident manatees, Hugh and Buffet! We usually go every year to assist in measuring their weight. Today though, we were helping them get moved back into their freshly repaired tank! The biologists carefully got both Hugh and Buffet, separately, onto the stretcher which we then lifted onto the trailer to get them from their temporary habitat to the newly restored habitat. You can watch the process in Mote's video below.
