Around 280 manatees huddle in the embayment area at the Florida Power & Light warm water outfall from the temporary heating system at the Riviera plant in Riviera Beach in early January. The plant was shut down due to future plans to modernize it in 2010

Very sad.I would say there is a human element to the big picture. We need to protect all the critters by preserving natural areas where they can live and reproduce. We need to stop ill considered development into natural habitat areas. We need to keep people out of natural areas and put a moratorium on hunting.
