Our mission is to protect endangered manatees and their aquatic habitat for future generations. In order to accomplish our objective and goals we concentrate our efforts on reducing the negative impacts to manatees and their aquatic habitat caused by human activity through:
1)Increasing public awareness and education
2)Sponsoring research, rescue, rehabilitation, and release efforts
3)Advocating for strong protection measures, such as boat speed zones and sanctuaries
4)Taking legal action when appropriate
I grew up in Florida and I remember there was a huge issue on speedboats harming our manatees. My elementary class took a field trip to a local aquarium the help rescued manatees. One of the manatees was badly injured and had a huge scar from his tail to head. They said he was fine and nothing else but to be very careful when on any kind of motor vehicle. I haven't step foot on a boat since.
Please Help the manatees.
