Unhappy How DESTRUCTIVE is the MANATEE?

Check this out!

http://www.manateestudy.com/

Once again, these are some of the issues we have been trying to talk to the state of FL. about! The SMC could care less about all the other species in the rivers! Please read and decide for yourself.
Thanks,
MD

Excellent Site, Dean!
Thanks you very much for that one!

I just e-mailed it(as well as standing watch site) to all my boating buddies who take issue with manatees.

I think each and every member of the SMC and FFWC should be assigned a designated manatee to follow around, collect all 100# of evasive and ecosystem-degrading dung that is produced each day and it should subsequently be trucked to Buffet's house for a little home remodeling! Just my $0.02

It's truly a CRIME about how much $$ the state of FL. spends on Manatees, vs. a student in FL. Public schools!!
I have another study from this site that I'm trying to get scanned and then I'll load it up. More good data coming!
Thanks for everyone's open minds and ability to see the TRUTH throught all the SMC/Manatee CRAP!

Very interesting web site. I can't believe the dock permit problem the property owners are having.
