    • Miles was stationary at the beginning of the visual. He began milling around. He later traveled to the outer wall of the marina, over towards the furthest dock, then back to where he was originally. He rested briefly, then milled again for the remainder of the visual. A tagging attempt was made.

    • Miles was milling around at the marina slowly. He would approach manatees who entered the area, then go back off on his own. He later rested, but would wake up and mill around, popping up in different locations. A retag attempt was made.

    •  Miles' tag and tether were recovered stuck in the seawall at a marina in Titusville. He was still in the area with his belt on and we have attempted to retag him every day since. We will continue to try this weekend and hopefully get a tag back on him soon!
