Manatee Response Update: Munching Manatees

Brevard commissioner suggests killing manatees might help save them

Manatee Response Update: Munching Manatees

The FWC has observed manatees eating vegetation provided by the team at the Temporary Field Response Station for the first time Thursday.
The FWC feels  this is an encouraging step but they  do not yet know if this behavior will continue.
Their  staff are continuing to provide food, monitor manatees onsite and are assisting and responding to manatees affected by the Unusual Mortality Event along the Atlantic coast.
Want to help manatees? Don’t try to feed them yourself – it can teach them to associate people with food & is illegal. Leave it to the experts & learn about other ways to help: https://myfwc.com/…/manatee/rescue-mortality-response/ume/
