Help Protect Our Florida Manatees - Enforce the Use of Propeller Guards on Boats!

     According to savethesea.org, over 100 manatees on average are killed each year, and much more are injured or deformed. Mortality rates have been climbing, up to 200 per year. The manatee population has been rapidly declining and has now been placed on the endangered species list. But there is a way to help prevent this. We could use propeller guards.

 

      Propeller guards shield the propeller of a boat and are relatively inexpensive. They allow time for the manatee and other sea creatures to get out of the way and protect them from sharp propeller blades, saving countless animals. If we could enforce the law to use propeller guards, at least on rental crafts, driven by inexperienced boaters, we could preserve manatees and other sea life for generations to come!

     My friends and I, The Sea Warriors, would like to champion a law requiring rental boat companies to equip all rental boats with propeller guards, preventing inexperienced boaters from injuring sea life. Your signature on our petition would be greatly appreciated! You can also visit our website at manateewarriors.webs.com.
