Manatees Desperately Need your Help!
The Florida manatee continues to face a barrage of threats - the loss of warm-water habitat, boat strikes, harmful algal blooms and more.
Without access to healthy sea grasses and other food sources, safe travel routes and calving areas, and suitable streams and waterways, manatees will not recover.
Thanks to you and other wildlife lovers, Defenders is confronting the manatee crisis head on.
We’re lobbying to expand existing protected areas, and to guide future development away from critical habitat. We’re also combatting boat strike deaths, by helping to establish and expand “slow zones” for boaters in manatee territory.
Your support is absolutely crucial to our efforts to save manatees, wolves, and other imperiled wildlife. We’re counting on you now more than ever.
