HOMOSASSA, FLORIDA - OCTOBER 05: Manatees swim in the Homosassa River on October 05, 2021 in Homosassa, Florida. Conservationists, including those from the Homosassa River Restoration Project, plant seagrass in the area to help restore the natural habitat for manatees and provide a feeding ground for the mammals, following a record year in manatee deaths in Florida. The deaths were primarily from starvation due to the loss of seagrass beds. (Photo by Joe Raedle/Getty Images)

This year has been a horrible year for manatees in Florida. There has been a record number of deaths reported and many of those deaths were preventable. Our manatees are dying of starvation. These conservationists were recently working in Homosassa planting sea grass so the manatees have food.
