Rescued manatee family returns to St. Johns River at East Palatka boat ramp

Published September 10, 2009 - Palatka Daily News
Three manatees were on their way from the Lowry Park Zoo in Tampa, and they were ready to make their way back home into East Palatka waters.

On May 14, a large female manatee was injured when a boat in the St. Johns River hit her, causing a blunt trauma wound to her chest and a collapsed lung.
