Miami Seaquarium Celebrates 60th Anniversary and Seeks Name for Baby Manatee

The Miami Seaquarium introduced the newest member of the family Wednesday — a rescued orphaned baby manatee — and they are asking the public’s help in giving her a fitting name.

The female orphaned baby manatee was rescued on June 19 from the Outer Clam Bay in Naples after she was observed without a mother. As part of the Manatee Rescue & Rehabilitation Partnership, the Miami Seaquarium provides life-saving medical care to rescued manatees.

Elle, Emoji, Gigabyte, Junebug and Prodigy are the five names Miami Seaquarium is asking the public to vote on.

Voting will take place from July 8 to August 14 on their website. The winner will be announced on August 17, 2015.
