There’s nothing more inspiring than people going out of their way to save the life of an innocent animal, and Florida beachgoers did just that when they rescued a beached manatee.

The crowd at Ponce Inlet discovered the stranded female sea cow in the early morning, and immediately rushed to her aid, providing shade, cool water, and even fresh oxygen from a scuba tank. They stayed with the manatee until a group of Florida Fish and Wildlife biologists arrived in the late afternoon. The biologists then inspected and tagged the adult manatee, and with the aid of more than a dozen volunteers, carefully lifted her onto a stretcher and released her back into the sea.

In the video embedded below, a local news anchor recaps the events that led to the manatee’s rescue and interviews a few of the compassionate volunteers who went out of their way to help an animal in distress.

According to the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species, there are only 10,000 American manatees currently living in the wild, making this Florida rescue all the more crucial to the survival of this majestic species.
