Another amazing sighting, this time off of Cape Cod. Over the last few days, this 8 foot manatee has been spotted several times. Our colleagues at the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) are keeping a close eye the manatee, monitoring its whereabouts and health status. Because Manatees are warm water marine mammals, it will be unable to survive here once the water temperature drops. The IFAW will be ready to intervene, if necessary.
