Long Description: 
Each year, hundreds of critically endangered manatees are killed in U. S. waters by boats, disease and cold weather. 2006 was the worst year on record for manatee deaths - 416 animals perished. With only a few thousand remaining in the wild, mostly in heavily developed Florida wetlands, the clock is ticking in efforts to save this amazing mammal from extinction.
