Nature

Meet the Manatees

Clip: Season 35 Episode 13 | 3m 20s

Antillean manatees cruise the coastlines of Puerto Rico, spending most of their time feeding on the sea grass. But while they graze, they are vulnerable to being struck by speeding jet-skis and boats. At the Manatee Conservation Center, just outside the capital city of San Juan, several injured individuals and orphans are on their way to release in the wild.
