Recent survey on the distribution of the African manatee


, : Recent survey on the distribution of the African manatee. Scientific Reports of the Whales Research Institute Tokyo, 137-147 No. 34

Manatees were found to inhabit the Senegal River system; they were distributed sparsely between Guinea-Bissau and Liberia through Sierra Leone and abundantly from Ivory Coast to Nigeria extending to Mali. Considerable numbers were in Cameroon and Gabon. The most abundant area was in the Niger River and its tributaries with connected swamps. According to the literature, the southern limit of the distribution is in angola, but it was unconfirmed due to the inaccessibility of the country.
