Everglades Coalition shared MyFWC's status update.

Migrating Manatees! Florida manatees are beginning their annual migration to warmer waters in order to survive the winter cold. As these slow-moving aquatic mammals migrate along rivers, canals, bays and coastlines, we caution boaters to slow down and watch out for manatees. The average adult manatee is 1,000 pounds and 10-feet long but may be difficult to spot despite its size. Did you know that wearing polarized sunglasses helps you spot a manatee underwater? Also watch for swirl wave patterns on the water’s surface – called manatee footprints – indicating a manatee’s presence below. Throughout the state, many seasonal manatee protection zones go into effect Nov. 15. Look for signs posted on the water indicating boat speed zones and click on the photos for more tips on spotting manatees! Please report sick, injured, orphaned, entangled or dead manatees by calling the FWC Wildlife Alert Hotline at 888-404-FWCC (3922), texting Tip@MyFWC.com, or calling #FWC and *FWC via cell phone.
