Thane Maynard talks about our latest manatee to be sent back to Florida for release. Illusion, the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden's 978-pound Florida manatee is heading home soon. After arriving at the Cincinnati Zoo one year ago, Illusion will return to the wild on November 9 as part of the US Fish & Wildlife Service's (USFWS) Manatee Rescue, Rehabilitation and Release Program. Visitors can see Illusion at the Zoo's Otto M. Budig Family Foundation Manatee Springs exhibit until Tuesday, November 8. At this time, there is no scheduled release date for Illusion's roommates, Wooten and Betsy.
