Navigate with Care Manatees are There


Did you know that 80 million tourists visit Florida annually, and more than 1,000 people move to the state each day? With over one million registered boats in Florida, and 1/2 a million more boats from other states that also utilize Florida's waterways, there is a real concern for the well-being of the public, manatees, and other aquatic wildlife.

Speedboat collisions and propeller maiming are the major cause for manatee deaths.
