Awesome Nonprofit Story: An Aquarium Rescues a Seahorse

It’s not the first time the center has stepped up

Of all of the many things for which Florida’s Clearwater Marine Aquarium is recognized, one is very small. And her name is Frito.

This week, CMA returned Frito the Seahorse to her natural home in the Gulf of Mexico. She is the third, and tiniest, seahorse rescued and returned to the wild by conservationists at the aquarium.

Dawn McCartney, a Tampa Bay resident, discovered Frito tangled in fishing line while snorkeling June 10. She freed the seahorse, placed her in a water bottled filled with seawater and then reached out to the aquarium for help.
