Aquarists from the River Safari feed West Indian manatees on Wednesday, May 25, 2016, in Singapore. The River Safari, a river-themed wildlife park which recently opened, has chosen the manatee to become the park's animal icon. It currently has 14 West Indian manatees which are considered vulnerable on the list of threatened species. Through captive breeding of manatees, the River Safari hopes to contribute to the species' population. To date, over 10 manatees have been born in Singapore. (AP Photo/Wong Maye-E)
