Bahamian Research Group Confirms “Washburn” the Wandering Manatee’s Safe Arrival


A Florida manatee known as “Washburn” has made history by being the first manatee that researchers have actively tracked as it crossed the Gulf Stream and arrived in the Bahamas. Last week, scientists from the Bahamas Marine Mammal Research Organisation (BMMRO) confirmed the pregnant manatee is now swimming in the waters of the northern Abacos near Grand Cay.

Crossing the 4-mph Gulf Stream and finding the banks of the Bahamas is no easy feat for slow-swimming manatees typically found in shallow water so researchers monitoring her track during her near 200-mile trek were somewhat concerned.

NHI Secretariat on concerns raised by BIA - Nov 29, 2016 - 9:40:29 AM

Nassau, The Bahamas – In regards to recent concerns raised by the Bahamas Insurance Association (BIA) pertaining to the RFP process for the Public Insurer, the NHI Secretariat would like to reiterate the importance of the timely roll-out of NHI Bahamas.
