Clearwater Marine Aquarium and Jabil Inc. are partnering to bring a new exhibit to CMA. The exhibit, Manatee Springs, will inform guests about the threats manatees are facing and how groups are working to protect the lovable sea cow.
Starting October 15, Dino Rescue will bring guests at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium up-close to life-size dinosaurs, some as tall as 35 feet and 65 feet long. As guests walk throughout CMA, they will encounter the dinosaurs, which move and roar, as they rehabilitate from various ailments today’s animals face – like habitat loss and entanglement.
Florida Governor Desantis signed a record $109.9 billion budget including $3.5 million directed for manatee rehabilitation pools at Clearwater Marine Aquarium. The funds are part of a record $20 million set to enhance and expand the State’s manatee acute care facilities and to restore spring access and habitat restoration in manatee concentrated areas.
