The Dominican Republic is home to the only species of the West Indian manatee, known as the Antillean manatee, in the Caribbean. These gentle giants inhabit the country’s coastal waters, mangrove estuaries, and freshwater rivers, playing a crucial role in marine ecosystems. Due to their endangered status, conservation efforts in the Dominican Republic focus on protecting these remarkable marine mammals and their habitats.
