Also known as “sea cows,” manatees are the only her-bivorous marine mammals, with seagrasses as a pri-mary food source. These large, gentle animals inhabit Florida’s coastal waters, congr eg ating in w arm waters by power plants, or in the southern parts of their range, in the winter and dispersing widely the rest of the year. Florida’s manatee population has increased since it was first listed as a federal endan-gered species in 1966 to a b out 6,000 t oda y. B ut habitat loss and strikes by boats and propellers remain major threats. Photos of manatees in Clam Pass and in the waterway near the County’s board-walk to Clam Pass Park have recently been taken.
