A ten foot female manatee named Eleven was rescued from the Lofton Creek in Nassau County by Florida by Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and Clearwater Marine Aquarium Research Institute (CMARI) on August 8, 2021. She was rescued due to entanglement of multiple crab traps wrapped around one of her flippers and received critical care at Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens’ manatee rehabilitation center. She was also thin and only weighed 1012 pounds the day of her rescue. After three months of rehabilitation, Eleven was released at a weight of 1221 pounds and measured 305 centimeters. She was released on December 1, 2021 at the Port Everglades discharge canal in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. CMARI tagged and outfitted Eleven with a GPS satellite tag and will be monitoring her movements as part of their manatee Northern Atlantic Coast study and as part of a cooperative study with state and federal agencies to assess manatee movement and habitat use as a result of the Unusual Mortality Event (UME).
All manatee work was conducted under USFWS Research Permit # MA37808A-2.
