Speak up for federal protections for manatees

Dear Interior Secretary Deb Haaland,

We, the undersigned, urge you to support restoring the manatees' endangered status. In 2021, a record 1,101 Florida manatees died. This was the deadliest year on record, and deaths are expected to continue through the winter.

Action is needed to protect manatees from further harm, and many environmentalists and biologists agree that restoring manatees' endangered status is an important step. Please do all you can to ensure that manatees are relisted as endangered and critical habitat is protected.
