Together they managed to save a life
A manatee was found stranded on the coast, in a state of poor health. Concerned bystanders immediately rushed to the scene to assist the animal. The manatee was diagnosed with low blood glucose levels and was given prompt treatment.
After receiving the necessary medical attention, the manatee was deemed fit to return to the ocean. However, before the animal was released, a tag was attached to its body to monitor its condition and whereabouts.
Manatees are an endangered species that are prone to various illnesses and diseases. The lack of food also presents a significant challenge for their survival.
Fortunately, the opening of a manatee center has enabled people to save approximately 30 of these creatures. This particular manatee had lost 52 kg before being rescued, and now weighs a healthy 222 kg thanks to the care and dedication of the rescuers.
The successful rescue and rehabilitation of this manatee is a testament to the compassion and hard work of all those involved in the effort to save these beloved creatures.
