By BBN Staff: Today is celebrated globally as World Oceans Day.
Among the many strategies being implemented to protect our natural resources, is the banning of plastics and using eco-friendly plastic alternatives.
While many environmentalists engaged in clean-up campaigns to keep our river banks and beaches clean, our Manateeman Jamaal Galvez today reported the death of another manatee.
According to Galvez, the young manatee was the victim of a boat collision.
Last year, the United States’ Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) downgraded the status of the West Indian Manatees from endangered to “threatened” and Galves said that it could be disastrous for Belize.
There are approximately 1,000 Antillean manatees left in Belize.
