How do you weigh a 760 Ib manatee? Go behind the scenes with Jacksonville University’s The Science Of… and watch the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens manatee rehabilitation team load Frankie onto a stretcher and hoist him into the air. Then celebrate as the team joins members of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission to release Frankie back into the wild in the Indian River. The Science Of… is an EPIC production Jacksonville University that brings Northeast Florida Science and Nature to you.
