Manatee Rescue

(A book in the Heroes of the Wild series)
A novel by

Zoologist Nicola Davies merges a heart-pounding adventure with a conservation message triggered by a life-changing - and mind-changing - encounter.

Manuela had imagined that killing a manatee would be like killing a very big fish, just more exciting. But when her father successfully harpoons one, leaving its baby orphaned, she finds that her feelings have changed. She vows to rescue the baby manatee and return it to the river. But she soon realizes what an enormous task she's taken on. Will she be able to save the baby manatee - and protect him from being hunted in the future, too?
