Manatees are going extinct and they should not be
California,

Manatees don't have natural predators. Their deaths are simply caused by human negligence. Their disappearance would be a vanishing world unto themselves. We should be a friend to these gentle creatures.

Manatees are beautiful and gentle creatures. I used to visit my grandparents in Florida when I was a little girl and would see manatees in the river by their house near Tampa Bay. As I got older, I saw hewer and fewer manatees there. This was a direct result of injuries from boats and other equipment in the water.

Manatees are so beautiful, and because their habitat is so limited, very few people ever get the opportunity to see them in the wild. Sharks, sea turtles, seals, sea lions and even beluga whales are all very charismatic in and get a fair amount of attention in conservation movements... Manatees, on the other hand, are less well-known and would therefore benefit the most from being included in your exhibit.

This expressive creature reflects how I feel about the ocean and how its creatures should be able to live... the sadness of reality

There are clearly identified ways humans can prevent the death of these unique and gentle creatures.

I love living here in Florida where a kayak trip often turns into an encounter with a curious manatee attracted by my yellow boat. It's near impossible to find one without scars from boat propellers. These beautiful, gentle creatures are at risk from nothing more than our reckless careless desire for speed. The manatee, the springs, the seagrass in the picture, all rare in beauty, all beautifully rare.

This image portrays the serenity of nature minding her business, and the world's creatures living their lives in her beauty and thriving on her bounty.

All other pictures show animals that at least have a bigger habitat. The poor creatures suffer b/c the homes are in ours. They are like armadillos.

The manatee's reaction is almost sad or distraught. It has almost human-like emotions, touching my heart.
California,

This gentle giant has no defenses from the human-caused maiming it receives.
