Rescue a few manatees, naturally.
Intrigued, Marcelo Clavijo and several friends went out for a drive to take in the odd sight of an empty bay.
"It was a pretty cool experience", Clavijo wrote.
Marcelo Clavijo posted that a group of people eventually loaded the manatees onto tarps and were able to drag them to deeper water.

He said he was getting "stir insane", so he went for a ride to check out the bay near Whitfield. "It's not like you can nudge these guys over".
"One wasn't moving, the other was breathing and had water in its eyes", Sechler said in a Facebook post.
The group then tried to help the animals, but the sheer size made it impossible to move them.
He said, "We don't want anybody to risk their lives; they were trying to do the right thing but it's not worth it".
