Default Manatee protection repealed???

Dear Defender,
Despite thousands of emails, Governor Jeb Bush of Florida has signed SB 540, legislation that will harm endangered manatees.

Pushed by the speed boat industry, this law weakens the Florida Manatee Sanctuary Act, and will lead to the death or injury of countless manatees from propellor blades.

Please call Governor Bush's office at (850) 488-4441 to express your personal outrage.

We're not giving up. Defenders of Wildlife plans to step up our efforts to help win more protections for manatees in Florida. If you can, please make a tax-deductible donation to help underwrite these expanded programs.

Thank you for your caring help to save wildlife and its habitat for future generations.

Thanks for all you can do to help the manatee.

Sincerely,

Steve Delvecchio
Vice President for Membership
Defenders of Wildlife

====================

Mine may just be next to yours..

I have no idea your real name or intent. Had you been thoughtful, you would have indicated it was forwarded.

I apologize for directing my venom to you directly.

Have a great evening...I'll buy the first drink in Sarasota...

Did you know that manatees are direct decedents of the elephant.

It's [email protected]

Unfortunately they like boat slips and harbors a but too much.
