KEEP MANATEES PROTECTED!
In response to a petition from boaters and property developers, the federal government is considering substantially reducing protections for manatees under the Endangered Species Act.
If this happens, protections such as boating speed limits and limits on marinas in key manatee habitat could be lifted.
The number of boat-related deaths in southwest Florida is near record-breaking and a mysterious die-off on the East Coast cost the lives of close to 900 manatees in 2013. Manatees and their habitat need more protection, not less.
