We may not be able to stop global warming soon but we can definitely increase Florida's boating regulations and safety to help

Manatees don't hurt anyone

The manatee actually is a good representation of its state in hte vanishing world. Most people know about the manatee as an endangered species, picture would reinforce awareness.

Manatees are impacted by humans directly and it is so important for us to be educated about how our actions can impact manatees and how to change them.

They live close to waters that are close to human habitat.
Florida,

Living in Manatee County I see these animals frequently. More frequently now than 30 years ago, so the efforts to protect them are working. But we still have a long way to go with these wonderful, gentle giants. And, so many other species of marine life.

Manatees and humans share the same problems: too many people sharing limited resources and not taking care of the other, including all other creatures.

Manatees are the gentle cows of the seas. They represent calm and beauty of the world.
New Jersey,

A world where gentleness and simplicity is being lost. Humans do not consider the externalities that occur because of their actions and the intrinsic value of an animal's survival.
Alaska,

Manatees, a vanishing species due to our neglect, greed, and complacency. Manatees pay the price of human indifference on a scale that should be criminal, but more importantly, should inspire the same humans to take action to save the species before its elimination

They are gentle creatures in need of our help. And with little change we can truly help them.

As a transplanted Floridian, I have worked for many years to save the Manatee from boaters and inconsiderate fishermen. I voted for the Manatee but I would like to vote for all of these endangered species.

The image best represents the vanishing world due to human harm, an avoidable problem.
China
Humanbeing as the most intellegent species on earth need to be smarter than depraving of the habitats from other species.
Brazil
Unfortunately, my beloved manatees are vanishing in all the world. There's a legend, a folk story in Brazil, that tells the manatees (called peixe-boi in portuguese) are used to live in the soil, among the humans. Then the flood came and all the manatees discovered their power to breath under the water. People were drowning and they have been saved by the magnificent manatees. But the envy take the human heart and the manatees start to be hunting. So, they moved definitely into the water. They are still running from the "human bean". Until now.
