The West African Manatee (Trichechus senegalensis) encompasses 21 African countries. Its population, however, is seriously threatened by hunting and bycatch fishing.

The conservation of this gentle, mysterious mammal associates with finding alternative livelihoods for Manatee hunters. Under a Save Our Species (SOS)’s project, Manatee hunters received training and equipment to take up catfish aquaculture if they pledged to give up Manatee hunting and to remove Manatee traps in the Lekki Lagoon, near to Lagos.
