Florida Manatee

November is manatee awareness month in Florida and with good reason: when the weather turns cold, they migrate to warmer water. They are more active in the cooler weather.

Carli Segelson at the state wildlife commission says this is the time of year when power boaters need to pay special attention. Wearing polarized  sunglasses helps a boater to see the manatees.

79 sea cows have died after being hit by boats this year. It’s the #2 cause of manatee mortality in Florida
