Raising awareness about these ‘sea cows’ that live under the water

Visit Florida – Manatee Appreciation Day is a day to appreciate the endangered species Trichechus manatus latirostris – the Florida manatee – and remind people about the importance of saving their habitat. Manatees are aquatic mammals known for their immense size, jowly appearance, and their lumbering way of moving while they graze the seafloor.
Taking simple precautions while boating will help to prevent harming the manatee. You can participate in the day’s celebrations by learning more about Manatees.
