Tell your U.S. House representative: Support endangered status for manatees

Winter is here -- which means danger for Florida's struggling manatees.

Without sufficient food in the warm-water refuges where they stay for the cold months, manatees are forced to forage in frigid waters -- which can prove fatal.

In the past two years, we've already lost nearly 2,000 manatees -- about 1 in 5 of the sea cows off Florida's Atlantic coast.

We can't wait any longer to protect them. Tell your U.S. House representative to support endangered species status for the manatee.
