Poster, booklets and a brochure for raising awareness about manatees and their wetland habitat.

The Río Grande de La Magdalena Regional Autonomus Corporation (CORMAGDALENA), in Barrancabermeja, Colombia, has completed the design and publication of an excellent series of didactic materials for their West Indies Manati Conservation Action Plan.

Among the outputs there is a children's booklet, an educational booklet with scientific information, a leaflet on what to do when finding a Manati and an outstanding poster that explains the beneficial relationship between the Manati and fishermen. The materials were published in Spanish. For more information please contact This publication was possible thanks to a contribution from the US Department of State and the US Fish and Wildlife Service through the Ramsar administrated Wetlands for the Future Fund.
