gdfatha,

Living in the Orlando area too I read it. They won't be happy till they make ALL the water Manatee zones.

I recently went up the St. Johns River. What a joke. If you start at Sanford and head north. It is either "No Wake" or "25 MPH Maximum Speed". Heck I got told I was going too fast. I was in my 1949 Chris-Craft.

Also, the river is dead, very few boats. Above Deland heading toward Lake George it is better in many spots.

A real shame.

Kitten they do not know and never will ,How many Manatees there are ! I saw one time there were like 1500 of the Pests Claimed !
Then someone put a chopper up and Counted over 5000 and a Friggin White one too boot.
We are being Lied too big time on the numbers ,and the Fact that they are damaging the Grass beds.

Of course "They" know how many manatees there are!
"They" are called Mote Marine Laboratory, and have been
doing aerial surveys since 1972 when a Manatee Act was
passed. Mote also does studies on marine grasses!
Dont beleive everything you read and consider the source.

Kitten,
Are you saying that Aerial Surveys are a Reliable way to count Manatees?
