ZooTampa's Manatee Critical Care Center

At our state-of-the-art David A. Straz, Jr. Critical Care Center, we take in sick, injured, and orphaned manatees and provide them with the specialized care they need so they can be re-introduced back to their native waters. It takes over 35,000 pounds of romaine lettuce every month to feed the manatees in our care!
