Lua (Antillean manatee)

From WikiAnimal

Lua was an antillean manatee that was found stranded in March 1991 in Morro Branco, in northeastern Brazil. Her stranding coincided with the initiation of the manatee reintroduction program, and she was one of the first rescued calves to enter rehabilitation. In 1994, Lua and another named manatee (Astro) were the first to be released in the wild. Lua quickly became the symbol of the reintroduction program, being used in local media and community activities to gain public attention.[1]
