Baby manatee rescued from entangled fishing line in Eleuthera - Feb 5, 2016 - 1:24:53 PM

Sm-Manitee.jpg
On December 29th, researchers from the Bahamas Marine Mammal Research Organisation (BMMRO) responded to a sighting report of a mother and calf manatees, known as “Gina” and “Sayle”, in Spanish Wells, Eleuthera, and discovered that the 5-month old calf had mono-filament fishing line entangled around her right flipper.

The Grand Bahama Human Rights Association remains alarmed over the government’s acquisition of armored vehicles, anti-riot gear, grenade launchers and tear gas from the People’s Republic of China.
