Description: 

A mama manatee and her baby calf were rescued out of a ditch off Fort Island Trail at Sea Drive. Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission (FWC) moved the pair out of harm's way. Hurricane Hermine not only damaged a lot of homes and businesses in Citrus County, but also displaced some animals, as well. Kudos to the county resident who saw the pair and called 911.
