  • 130523-N-PA772-001 GUANTANAMO BAY, Cuba (May 23, 2013) Members from Naval Facilities Engineering Command Southeast spent last week in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba with a U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) team in an effort to tag manatees. In five days the team was able to trap four manatees and put satellite tags on three adult animals. On May 22, the team tagged a female near Lizard Island and Deer Point and a male later that day in Corinaso Cove.  A female calf was captured on May 23, but was too small to tag. The large calf (in photo) was caught in the channel just south of the base commanding officer's house.  Although the team was unable to capture the mom, they did a full health assessment and marked the calf for future identification. The calf was quickly released and reunited with her mother. They believe this mom/calf pair routinely use the area south of Deer Point as a nursery. On May 24, another male was captured and tagged in Corinaso Cove. The manatees will now be tracked via satellite providing the USGS regular updates as to the movements of the manatees. This was a great team effort for the USGS team as volunteers from GTMO volunteer team helped as spotters, boat crew, and medical crew.  The USGS team will return to GTMO in October 2013 to conduct another round of tagging. (U.S. Navy photo by xxx/released).
