Manatee tracking maps

Twiggy continues to use the area between the two manatee resting holes, going in and out of the lagoon, ending up in the sheltered bay she used when first released.

Tracking continues, and Twiggy is showing more and more affinity for the resting hole, spending some of her nights there - and some of her days.

After another two-day trip to the north coast, Twiggy is back at the release site - she's settling into a routine, and has shown that she knows her way back and forth between her two primary activity areas. She is more confident in the deeper water, moving around objects with a wider berth than when first released (when she would hug the shoreline closely). She moves confidently through Sarteneja, staying offshore unless distracted by activity - she spent a couple of hours enjoying the night music and lights of the local bar as she moved through the last time. We send volunteers into Sarteneja when we know she is approaching, who work with the community to ensure that there is minimal interaction, and to date, she has moved on after a brief pause
