Whatever Happened to Washburn the Wayward Manatee?


Whatever Happened to Washburn the Wayward Manatee?

Research at the Reserve Coffee House Series

Misty Niemeyer will be discussing the rescue efforts for the manatee "Washburn" which took place in September 2016 in Falmouth, just off of Waquoit Bay Reserve’s Washburn Island component. Additionally, she will place the rescue in the context of other occurrences of manatees on Cape Cod and present about the marine mammal rescue and research work that IFAW does here on Cape Cod.
