Manatees (22) More files... by Fred Bavendam
A mother manatee simultaneously nurses her own calf as well as an orphan. A wary adult eyes the propeller of a motorboat the likes of which are threatening the health and habitat of these marine mammals. Fred Bavendam shows us the gentle nature of the endangered manatees of Florida's Crystal River and introduces us to efforts to improve this species precarious hold on survival.
