Meet the Manatees
Jason Edwards: "Even though I spent twelve years as a professional zookeeper and decades working with wildlife and conservation projects all over the planet I’m still thrilled by the chance to get up close and personal with species that are as fascinated by me as I am by them. Spending time with orphaned Manatee calves was a unique and touching experience. It was also important to remember that both they and I were there due to complex issues affecting their natural habitat and their survival as a species. "
