The Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission is scheduled to release a manatee back into the wild in Fort Pierce Wednesday afternoon.
"Leia" the manatee was rescued from the South Causeway back in March and weighed only 150 pounds. She underwent rehab in Miami.
The release will occur at 2 p.m. at Moore's Creek, which is located next to the Manatee Observation and Education Center in Fort Pierce.
