Manatee Rescued

DPMMR contributes to rescue an injured mother Manatee and her nursing calf

February, 26, 2020 

DPMMR contributed to another multi-agency effort to successfully rescue an injured mother Manatee and her nursing calf in Key Largo today. The mothers pectoral flippers were severely entangled in  fishing net gear making it difficult for the baby to nurse, and could eventually kill the mom. While DPMMR holds the NMFS federal permit to rescue Keys dolphins and whales, it is the Dolphin Research Center and FWC who take lead on manatee rescues. But regardless of who holds the permits when either Manatee’s or Dolphins are at risk we all work together for a successful outcome. Both mother and calf will be transported by DRC to the Miami Seaquarium where they will receive expert care and a return trip ticket to be released in the same area where they were rescued once the mothers injuries have healed. It takes a village!

 

Left pectoral flipper... Please keep our oceans clean and dispose of your fishing gear and garbage in proper receptacles.
