Default Interesting Letter in the Fl. Today paper

"Whales' plight far worse than manatees'

By some estimates, more than 100,000 manatees and dugongs live in tropical waters around the world, with more than 3,000 in Florida alone.

However, there are only about 300 North Atlantic right whales remaining in the entire world.

It seems to me the Save The Manatee Club would be doing more to protect a truly endangered species if it concentrated more on making the Atlantic shipping lanes a no wake zone, and less on Florida's rivers and estuaries."

The only reality about the Save the Manatee Club, is that their chirping from their soapbox is about nothing more than keeping their jobs.
