Saving our underwater world one manatee at a time

A manatee calf, captured by a team of U.S. Naval Station Guantanamo and Joint Task Force Guantanamo volunteers, waits for an official medical screening Nov. 13 at Lizard Island. The manatee was one of seven manatees captured during the Nov. 10-14 U.S. Geological Survey's Sirenia Project. The goal is to capture and radio tag as many of the sea mammals as possible so that scientists can gain a better understanding of the endangered species, and help communities such as U.S. Naval Station Guantanamo better protect them.
