Animal rescue at the Orlando park cost $10 million in 2016 — an amount no other organization spent, CEO Joel Manby said in May. Since 1974, the Orlando park has rescued 10,094 animals — which includes 597 manatees and 7,316 birds.
As red tide spreads and kills more animals, emergency rescuers fear their workload will only rise.
Another study commissioned by the federal government and the National Autonomous University of Mexico said the die-off was possibly the result of several factors, including rising water temperatures.
Unable to find a good Italian Sub, we talked about opening a place of our own and then fell upon a golden opportunity here at River Safari’s and Gulf Charters in Old Homosassa, FL where we could provide Quality sandwiches featuring Boars Head Products.
Looking forward to another manatee season, officially beginning November 15th, we welcome you to join us for the adventure of a lifetime! Come for 2 days, or 3 days... experience all the wonder that the Nature Coast has to offer!
Most of the life of a manatee is spent in very murky water and they are also active throughout the night in the dark. For this reason, manatees do not need to have perfect vision and are reported to be practically near sighted, however they have receptors for both blue and green wave lengths allowing them to see in color and can therefore differentiate between random objects and luscious green plants to eat.
When Rhonda is not Captaining Ms. Manatee, you can find her digging into a great book of inspiration, traveling, scuba diving....and she LOVES music! She's also a big sports fan so you might catch her watching college football on Saturday to keep up with her Wisconsin Badgers or watching the Packers on Sunday. Shout out to all the other Cheeseheads out there!
Other than Mother Nature, manatees and growing food, Emerson's passion lies in music. Chelsea and Emerson have a traveling musical duo and are called 'Well Worn Soles'; they are FANTASTIC and the crew loves to go watch them play at Burke's and Crackers. He an a-typical Tauras; caring, kind and generous with the best of intentions. He's like most of us, saying that the least favorite part of his job is the early alarm clock ringer. He's never had a job where he had to rise before the sun every day!
Mike was born in Puerto Rico (hence his nickname Rico Sauve! shhhh) but grew up in the Boston area. Like most folks from Boston he is down to earth and a super Red Sox and Patriots fan.

Family is very important to Mike, and he's become a very important member of our River Ventures family! We are grateful to have him!
