Reclassifying the manatee to appease narrow business interests would be a step backwards. Tell the federal government to keep manatees on the endangered species list.

signed, I have seen Manatees in the intercoastal waterway.
Aside from prop scars,they are highly endangered.
What mental midget is going to change their protections for greed?
They are the calmest sea mammals in existence,how long do they have??

I'd love to sign this but I'm having a problem. When I go to add the 0 in front of my zip code red letters come up telling me there's been an error. I've contacted Help but it doesn't seem to change. Any ideas, anybody?

"The interested parties want eventually for the manatee to have no legal protection at all, presumably because this is inconvenient" -- how eloquent!

This happens way too often, does it not? Well, often enough to be pretty annoying. If a species is endangered yet lucky enough to be legally protected, there is a good reason for that, right. If some "interested group", whose usually business interests this coincides with, just steps in and starts lobbying so that the species is stripped of protection whenever and for whatever reason this group likes, it is not only ludicrous -- it should be impossible! And if a higher authority hears this out, it sucks.

May manatees stay protected, as they deserve!
