This #wildlifewednesday we'd like to introduce you to Callie! Rescued in the middle of September, which also happens to be Manatee Awareness Month, Callie loves her seagrass, and the Manatee Team is keeping busy picking it by the bucketful fresh from the lagoon for her. #manatee #antillean #endangered #wildliferehabilitation #racingextinction 📸 by K.

🔵 Dugongs are long lived, and the oldest recorded specimen reached age 73. They have few natural predators, although animals such as crocodiles, killer whales, and sharks pose a threat to the young, and a dugong has also been recorded to have died from trauma after being impaled by a stingray barb. A large number of infections and parasitic diseases affect dugongs. Detected pathogens include helminths, cryptosporidium, different types of bacterial infections, and other unidentified parasites. 30% of dugong deaths in Queensland since 1996 are thought to be because of disease.

Although they are social animals, they are usually solitary or found in pairs due to the inability of seagrass beds to support large populations. Gatherings of hundreds of dugongs sometimes happen, but they last only for a short time. Because they are shy, and do not approach humans, little is known about dugong behaviour. They can go six minutes without breathing (though about two and a half minutes is more typical), and have been known to rest on their tail to breathe with their heads above water. They can dive to a maximum depth of 39 metres (128 ft); they spend most of their lives no deeper than 10 metres (33 ft). Communication between individuals is through chirps, whistles, barks, and other sounds that echo underwater. Different sounds have been observed with different amplitudes and frequencies, implying different purposes. Visual communication is limited due to poor eyesight, and is mainly used for activities such as lekking for courtship purposes. Mothers and calves are in almost constant physical contact, and calves have been known to reach out and touch their mothers with their flippers for reassurance.

Two stump tailed #macaques we helped #rehome in a #rescue center after a year in illegal captivity. One had lost an arm in a trap. The owner gave them up to the #ENV #wildlife hotline. Help us keep it open by making a donation via the link in our bio.

It’s #WorldOkapiDay, in other words, World Kali and Jabari Day!
You could also argue it’s World Forest #Giraffe Day! #Okapi are sometimes referred to as such, being the only living relatives to giraffes and because of where they live.

These guys inhabit the dense, lowland rainforests of the Democratic Republic of Congo in #Africa. They are so elusive that this animal was just discovered at the start of the 20th century. In the last 15 years, their population has declined by half due to deforestation, poaching and mining and have become #endangered, according to the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.

Did you know? Okapi actually speak a secret language. Mothers use infrasonic sounds, calls with very low frequencies, to communicate with their young. These mutterings are so low, in fact, that predators, even humans, cannot hear them. (Photos by: Josh Shandera and Corissa Mangus, keepers)

This is a Panamanian golden frog, Atelopus zeteki, from the Cordilleran cloud forests of west-central Panama. It is listed as a critically endangered species but experts believe they have been extinct in the wild since 2007. It's thought that the fungal infection chytridiomycosis is one of the contributing factors to their decline. Luckily a few have been bred in captivity and I was able to see a small group of these bright little frogs today at the Glen Oak Zoo.
