Manatee protection plan is criticized

Posted on Nov. 10, 2006
The state's new manatee plan puts stronger focus on preserving winter havens, but environmentalists contend it falls short on protection goals.

The plan urges protecting water levels in natural springs and working with electrical utilities considering closing aging coastal power plants. Springs and power plants' discharges create warm-water havens for many of the state's 3,000 or so manatees.
