Though born in the wild, Woodstock was rescued along with her mother off the Southwest coast of Florida in 2011. Both were victims of cold-stress (prolonged exposure to low temperatures), and while Woodstock survived, her mother did not.

This Cincinnati Zoo manatee is going home

Wooten will be released into the wild next month.

Wooten is saying goodbye to the Cincinnati Zoo. The 630-pound manatee will soon be headed to his native Florida. Next month he'll return to the wild as part of the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service's Manatee Rescue, Rehabilitation and Release Program. Wooten has been at the Cincinnati Zoo for the last two years.
