Discover the Gentle Giants: A Journey into the World of Manatees🤿

Have you ever heard of sea cows? How about manatees? Whether you’re familiar with these gentle giants or not, get ready to dive into their world. 

Manatees, those loving and friendly gentle giants of the sea, find solace in the crystal- clear springs of Florida. As the temperature drops, these marine creatures seek refuge in the springs, where the water stays a comfortable 72 degrees Fahrenheit. It’s a perfect escape for manatees when the Florida chill sets in.

Despite being protected animals, manatees face various dangers. One significant threat comes from boaters who may unknowingly harm these gentle creatures. Signs in specific areas remind boaters to slow down and navigate with care, respecting the manatees beneath the water’s surface. Another danger lies in the increasing algae levels in the springs, disrupting the sea grass and depriving manatees of their food source. 

The unfortunate decline in manatee populations since 2020 is a concern for marine biologists. However, spotting numerous manatees in the springs remains an awe-inspiring sight. Blue Spring State Park recently had an impressive count of 932 manatees, showcasing the resilience of these incredible creatures.
