Tell the Biden administration: Grant manatees endangered species status
As we head into winter, Florida's manatees face a perilous future.
The manatees aren't finding enough to eat in the places that will keep them warm -- meaning they will have to venture out in the cold or risk starvation. The last few winters contributed to a record-setting number of losses. So far this year, more than 700 manatees have died -- and things will only get worse as temperatures drop.
This winter, let's make sure Florida's manatees have the protections they need. That is why we're calling on the Fish and Wildlife Service to restore manatees' endangered species status under the Endangered Species Act.
