Manatee’s are essentially the teddy bears of the sea-munching on seaweed, nuzzling whatever they encounter with their little whiskers and generally just rolling around the ocean nomming on greens and living their manatee lives – they are also an essential part of the natural marine ecosystem. With only three species of Manatee’s left in the world it is important now more than ever to spread awareness of their importance and for us all to do our best to try to preserve one of the few remaining cuddly sea mammals we have left in the 21st century.
