A memorial for Snooty the Manatee will be held Sunday morning after having to be rescheduled due to Hurricane Irma.
Snooty was Florida's longest-living captive manatee until he died due to an accident in his enclosure at the South Florida Museum.
"The Snooty Memorial Open House will pay tribute to Snooty's legacy, while we celebrate his remarkable life and all that he has brought to the Museum and the world throughout his record-breaking 69 years," said Brynne Anne Besio, Museum CEO.
The celebration of Snooty's life will include a visual tribute to Snooty in the Museum's Bishop Planetarium, opportunities for visitors to help create memorial projects honoring Snooty, and a trip through the Parker Manatee Aquarium to learn more about Snooty's true legacy: the Museum's Manatee Rehabilitation Program.
The memorial celebration is Sunday, September 24 from Noon - 5 p.m. at the South Florida Museum. Admission is free.

While Maria may wander close to the Outer Banks of North Carolina, it will stir up dangerous seas all along the U.S. East Coast beaches through next week.
Hurricane Maria has come and gone, however the effects of the devastating blow are still hitting Puerto Rico. Emergency officials in Puerto Rico had to evacuate tens of thousands of people due to an imminent dam failure in the nearby areas of Isabela and Quebradillas.
While no new threats are lurking behind Maria and Lee this week, residents of the Caribbean and United States should not let their guard down as tropical season is far from over.
Despite the start of astronomical fall, ongoing heat from the central United States will spread toward the Atlantic coast through early week.
