WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — The Ft. Fisher Aquarium reports on its Facebook page that a manatee has been spotted in the water around Pleasure Island.

An aquarium employee tells us the Office of The Marine Mammal Stranding Network is keeping an eye on it.

Just a few weeks ago, a seal hung out on New Hanover County beaches for awhile. Experts say it was farther south than most seals usually travel.

As with the seal, aquarium officials want to remind people that manatees are protected, and you shouldn’t approach or try to swim with them.

Here’s a direct link to the aquarium’s Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/NC-Aquarium-at-Fort-Fisher/200740776618276
