Twin juvenile manatees “Millennium” and “Falcon” were released yesterday by marine mammal experts with @dolphinresearchcenter, @myfwc’s Conservation Commission and @miamiseaquarium_. The twins were rescued in 2016 after their mother died from a boat strike. Twin manatees are extremely rare, making up less than four percent of births. #connectandprotect 📷: Bob Care
