For one, I love manatees. Last year, I did a report on them for school so I know all about their suffering. I looked at the other animals and I would have to say by far the manatee is in most danger. I hope the manatee can be saved.

Manatees are obviously threatened by humans. They are appealing and local.

Because these "gentle giants" are scarred even in the wild from propellers.
Maryland,

The manatee is very endangered
It is cool

Manatees in Florida are often scarred by motorboats. They are sweet, mild-tempered creatures. We should help them.
Georgia,
United States
Because there are almost no more manatees left.
Virginia,

The manatee may soon be lost due to human stupidity.
Florida,

This animals' trust in man has led to it's near extinction. It is ironic that we struggle to save this creature from vanishing, yet we are responsible for its' predicament.

In FL we are well versed on the boating rules to save the manatees. We love our gentle giants.

Older they get less of them that there are.

Manatees are quiet, gentle creatures. They are from the US and many people never get to see these remarkable gentle giants close-up.

I've seen many manatees in zoos an aquariums with no room to move. They always look so sad. :(

The manatee in the picture looks so sad, yo ucan tell he's beat up and has had a hard life.

Florida and Carribean Manatees are my favorite species. I would like my grandchildren to see them.
California,

It represents how humans are careless to think about how they are affecting the world. Because of them, the human race could vanish along with manatees and other animals.
New York,
United States
It represents the impact humans have on the environment first hand. There is no questioning the fact that humans are part of the Florida manitees' harship.
Kentucky,
United States
One day I would like to be lucky enough to be able to see a manatee, should the good Lord decide to keep them around for us and that I should be able to go on a vacation where they will still be swimming around.
Due to humans destroying much of their already limited habitat, they have grown to depend on us to survive the winters and to survive at all.
