Homosassa Springs State Wildlife Park
Homosassa Springs Wildlife park is a refuge where injured or orphaned manatees which have received treatment at a critical care facility are housed, fed, and cared for - until released or for the rest of their lives, depending on whether or not the animal is expected to be able to re-acclimate itself to life in the wild. The park features a floating observatory which enables you to get "up-close" with the swimming manatees - with windows to allow you to see them feeding, playing and cavorting in the warm spring waters.
