Default More Manatee news for Florida

http://www.floridatoday.com/apps/pbc...701110335/1006

Watchout, SW Florida, the FFWCC is stating that SW FLA is the only area that the Manatee population is NOT GROWING!

They have no idea how many manatee there are, but that doesn't mean they won't bow down in front of the $MC lawyers and add new Manatee zones, or deny marine construction permits!!!!!

It's a good thing I just had my lift put in! I've been here 2 years and have yet to see a manatee. I have seen plenty of Dolphin (Flipper) in my canal though!

F1,
Good for you, we are going to have another lift put in this spring for the Seadoo, hopefully with no problems.

This is a blog from the local $MC loving newspaper!

It's interesting how people are really beginning to NOT CARE about the Manatees. Unfortunately, they are no the problem, it's the $MC that they need to dislike!

formla1,
If you want to see manatees come to Brevard County. This past year I dare say that we saw manatee every day out on the water. And they wonder why more are getting hit????
