Latest Manatee Update

March 5, 2021:

With no manatees and bad weather, we have not blogged. We hoped as it was a bit cool yesterday and last night some might come in, but it didn’t happen. The river temp was 69.8° F (21° C). We hope to see some manatees by Monday as the cool weather will continue for a few days. — Wayne Hartley, Manatee Specialist, and Cora Berchem, Director of Multimedia & Manatee Research Associate
