Former Resident Of Columbus Zoo Arrives At New Home
A manatee’s road to recovery ended in Cincinnati this weekend.
Woodstock the manatee was found in late 2011 with her mother off of the Florida cost suffering from cold stress.
Woodstock was chosen to participate in the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s Manatee Rescue and Rehabilitation Program and was sent to the Columbus Zoo to undergo rehabilitation.
Two rehabilitated manatees just left the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden to go back to Florida to prepare for re-release into the wild.
Woodstock joins one remaining manatee at the Cincinnati zoo’s Manatee Springs exhibit.
Three manatees remain at the Columbus zoo – Pixie, Wheezy and Stubby.
The Columbus and Cincinnati zoos are the only two U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s Manatee Rescue and Rehabilitation Program partners outside of Florida.
