The National Park Service (NPS) and the US Fish & Wildlife Service, along with the Puerto Rico Manatee Rescue team, are out on the water today searching for two manatees.
One manatee at Buck Island was sighted yesterday and is approximately 4-ft. in length; the other has been seen in Frederiksted and is 6-8 ft. long. The manatee in Frederiksted was seen south of the pier and may have moved up to the refinery area.
