Title: Victory for Manatees
This is from the Save the Manatee September 2010 newsletter: article, with pictures, entitled “Three Sisters Springs Is Saved”
“Three Sisters Springs is safe from development. . . . The Three Sisters Springs property, which abuts two manatee sanctuaries, is now owned by the city of Crystal River and the South Florida Water Management District. The property will be managed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service . . . and included as part of the Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge. The agency plans to provide observation decks for manatee viewing, as well as other educational opportunities. . . .”
Save the Manatee Club offers other opportunities to manatee lovers, including manatee adoption and manatee gifts. Among the various animal gifts I have given my grandchildren, one was a manatee to Brandon. The family loves going to visit Arial at Homosassa Springs.
Three Sisters Springs provide one of the most important warm water refuges for endangered manatees on Florida’s west coast. To see the whole article go to:
