“The Kingdom of Bahrain includes the second largest gathering of “sea cows” in the world,” stated Head of the Marine Monitoring Unit at the Supreme Council for Environment (SCE), Ali Mansour.
The meeting is part of the council’s awareness campaign to the public about the types of species threatened with extinction.
Mansour said that sea cows live in groups and that Australia included the largest of these groups. He explained that in the second place came the Kingdom of Bahrain, where sea cows live on the eastern coast. He added that the reason was the existence of suitable weeds for their food on the eastern coast of the Kingdom.
Head of the Marine Monitoring Unit at the SCE stated that sea cows were among the endangered animals and threatened with extinction. He called for maintaining them.
