Jamal arrived with the manatee this evening, and it is now settling into the pool. Tomorrow we will have a much better idea of its chances.
Thank you to all who reported this animal or helped catch it or drove it here, to all of the Wildtracks volunteers who put their hands up when we asked for observers for tonight's portion of the first 24 hour watch, and for our Local Wildtracks Team who stayed late to provide lifting power for moving this manatee to the pool.
Thank you also to all those boat drivers who watch out for manatees, who pay attention to No Wake Zones and who boat conscientiously in the manatee-rich waters in front of Belize City.
