Manatee deaths are skyrocketing in Florida. Requiring propeller shields on boats is the right thing to do! The waters are becoming more crowded every day, and no relief for our endangered manatee in sight. The argument against this rational approach

Manatees are gentle mammals and need to be protected from becoming extinct.

If something as simple as propeller guards will save manatees then it just seems stupid to not make them the law!

Signed and noted. There needs to legislation to make it mandatory for propellor guards to be fitted to all vessels that pose a danger to marine life.

Why not have a WORLD WIDE LAW for propeller guards on boats!! They sound like a great idea.

I agree with Nancy Forter. We most certainly should be responsible, but as a collective whole, we seldom are.

I attended a manatee talk. The speaker said on average every manatee gets hit by boats 8 times during its lifetime. Some of course don't survive.
