Hey…everyone wants to go to Florida…even the manatees!
Floridians have been warned about increased manatee activity due to the mammals swimming to warmer waters.
How many manatees have swam to Florida waters? Aerial shots have shown over 304 swimming near Fort Lauderdale alone!
Manatees are extremely susceptible to cold water and they have learned that power plants heat the water tremendously.
Currently, there have been numerous reports of the big guys swimming near power plants.
Boats and ships are the leading cause of death when it comes to manatees so officials are making sure they stay safe.
Happy (and responsible) boating everyone!
