While walking the boat docks I came across a rare sight. Manatees!

An endangered species in Florida. Oneof the problems this extremly gentle animal has, is that they only hear in a range of 400 - 700 mhz. With a huge population of humans driving watercraft which output noise at a minimum of 1100 mhz. The Manatees are not even aware they are in danger of being hit, mamed and killed.















suggestions and comments always welcome
