Florida’s waterways and coasts have been plagued in recent years by pollution, leading to a massive loss of the seagrasses that manatees need to survive. Hundreds of manatees have starved to death as a result. The federal government downlisted the status of the manatee from endangered to threatened in 2017, but current circumstances call for greater protection. If you want to help the Florida Wildlife Federation stop manatee deaths and restore their aquatic habitat, support the uplisting of the West Indian manatee to endangered. Please take action today.
