Florida Manatee Deaths Hit A Record 1000
But it’s not a lost cause.
Manatees are dying in record numbers as a direct result of pollution. First reported in February, by July we’d reached 430 dead, putting us on track for a record year. We have just recorded 1000 dead and it’s only November. The last high we hit was in 2013, 830. But there are steps you can take. Yes, you. No matter where you live.
