Manatees are magnificent marine mammals. However, they are very fragile. We need to do more to protect the manatees. It is estimated that 25% of all Florida manatee deaths are due to boating accidents. That is unfathomable.

There needs to be more signs to steer boaters away from manatees. If there is an area that is frequently inhabited by manatees, then that area should prohibit any boaters from entering. No more “Caution” signs. There are way too many reckless boaters out there that, if cautioned, would still be too inattentive. All caution zones should be changed into no entry zones.

Way too many manatees are dying due recklessness and it needs to stop!

We, the undersigned, call on the State of Florida to do more to save the manatees of Florida. We urge you to prohibit boaters from entering areas that are frequently inhabited by manatees.

We are sickened by the vast amount of deaths to manatees due to reckless boaters.

We want to put a stop to it.
