    • Biore was cavorting with a few other manatees in Pine Island Sound. Since his release he has utilized warm water sites, been consistently eating and has demonstrated overall good behaviors to warrant an end to his monitoring. During a body condition assessment, he was vigorously feeding. He had a round belly and looked very good overall. After his monitoring gear was removed, he stayed in the immediate vicinity interacting with the other manatees. Way to go Biore, you are now free and clear!

    • Biore was resting in a small river off the Caloosahatchee with many other manatees.

He moved away from that activity and began to rest for the remainder of the observation.

    • Biore was resting in a canal off the Caloosahatchee River. He started milling briefly than moved out of the canal and started traveling across the river. He intersected a few manatees heading inland and he started following them. He was moving very quickly like a manatee on a mission.

    • Slate was with several other manatees in a small spring in Kings Bay. There was lots of activity as the all interacted with each other sometimes to the point of cavorting. Occasionally Slate would move off like he was going to rest then a new manatee would move in and the activities began again.
