The Issues Facing Manatees

Manatees also known as Sea Cows are currently suffering from starvation and electric boats, the issue is growing as sea grass (their only food) disappears from polluted waters and toxic algae. 

Polluted waters can affect and poison their bodies which can lead to death. Algae blocks sunlight, which is needed to grow sea grass. This problem can continue for many years but people have been finding ways to help the manatees, some rescue teams have been feeding manatees and its working great. 

About 300-800 Manatees appear at the feeding spots where they produce about 50,000 pounds to feed them.
