Dr. Dineli Bras, (the only ophthalmology veterinarian in PR), went to the center to check Bajari’s eyes. Dr. Bras and her team found the presence of bilateral exophthalmia, eye ulcers in both eyes, conjunctivitis, and intracorneal, infiltration. Now, Bajarí will receive the proper treatment for his sight.
We are doing everything humanly possible to save him, but gradually because we don’t want to give him too much stress and avoid pressure on his eyes. We hope to bring you good news on his recovery, and give him the opportunity to meet his two new sister, Loíza and Taicaraya.
On July 5th, The Manatee Conservation Center received a manatee cub, rescued from the beach coast on Arroyo, Puerto Rico, said Dr. Antonio Mignucci, director of the center.
The male cub, of 64 pounds, was found alone close to the Punta Guilarte beach by Sargent Walter Berrios and agent Ángel Morelles from the municipal police. “As the manatee was found, the MCC was notified and we called the Natural Resource Center, to proceed with the rescue”, said Mignucci.
