Dark side of the boom: Florida's record manatee count may hurt this species

This article was very inresesting. It was about the manatees in flordia and how right now they are on the endargerd list, although some people think they shouldn't be because two years ago, Flordia counted 828 manatee deaths, the most ever recorded. This year, things appear to be getting better for the marine mammal. Although their still are some manatee deaths (mostly caused by boat collisions), the amount of deaths have gone down a great deal.
