Dead manatee found in Sarteneja village

Posted: Thursday, June 9, 2022. 12:04 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: According to a report from the Sarteneja Alliance for Conservation and Development (SACD), a dead manatee was found in the Los Pinos area of Sarteneja Village, Corozal, over the weekend, within the bounds of the Corozal Bay Wildlife Sanctuary (CBWS).

The SACD identified the ‘sea cow’ as a male calf measuring approximately 5.5 feet or 169 centimetres. There was no sign of trauma or other physical injury related, for instance, to a watercraft collision and the animal was otherwise in good health with no swelling or trauma in the internal organs. The cause of death thus remains undetermined but investigations continue.

While boaters appear to be off the hook in this instance, boat strikes remain the most common cause of untimely manatee deaths according to SACD.

Users of the CBWS are advised to remain attentive when piloting watercraft and remember that humans are guests in these gentle giants’ habitats.

To report any issues out in the Bay related to wildlife, contact SACD personnel using Facebook Messenger (24/7) or by calling 671-1440 (Mon-Fri; 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.). One call can save wildlife!
