Dennis The Cape Cod Manatee
A Photographic Record of a Marine Mammal's Special Visit to Sesuit Harbor
by Joseph F. Cavanaugh III
"Dennis The Cape Cod Manatee" is packed with 120 photos taken over four (4) days in early October, 2008, when Cape Cod was visited by a very special marine mammal. A manatee, named Dennis after the Town of Dennis which the animal adopted as a northern home, appeared in Sesuit Harbor on October 1, 2008, then returned there on October 8th, and stayed until a rescue effort was launched on October 11, 2008. The book features rare photos of Dennis lifting his head high out of the water to drink from a freshwater hose, and covers the rescue efforts extensively. A unique record of a historic visit from a warm water marine mammal who ventured a long way from his usual habitat in the waters off Florida and Georgia. The book includes fun facts about manatees, and describes key features of Dennis' visit to Cape Cod. A wonderful gift for kids, and anyone who appreciates nature and the beautiful place called Cape Cod.
