Always fun to see these gentle giants when you’re paddling!

From Officials:

Because of significant improvements in population and habitat conditions, and reductions in direct threats, we’re proposing the West Indian ‪Manatee‬ be downlisted from endangered to threatened under the Endangered Species Act (ESA).

The proposal to downlist will not affect federal protections currently in place by the ESA.

“The manatee’s recovery is incredibly encouraging and a great testament to the conservation actions of many,” said Cindy Dohner, the Service’s Southeast Regional Director in conjunction with an event at the Miami Seaquarium to announce the Service’s proposal. “Today’s proposal is not only about recognizing this progress, but it’s also about recommitting ourselves to ensuring the manatee’s long-term success and recovery.
