Manatee health evaluated during annual program in Crystal River

Various agencies captured and evaluated the health of manatees during the United States Geological Survey's annual manatee captures and health assessments program at the Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge. The research is being conducted under permit by USGS, FFWCC, and USFWS. The manatees were captured using land-based nets and manatee handling and restraint techniques, and were assessed by veterinarians and medical researchers who obtained all relative data about each animal before its release.
