Manatees need more protection from humans, Crystal River advocates say

Published June 6, 2009 - St. Petersburg Times
Nearly 100 business owners, environmentalists and residents packed a community meeting Thursday to talk about how to protect manatees in Crystal River, the only place in the country where the federal government permits swimming with manatees.

The community's ideas will be presented to the full Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission when it meets in Crystal River on June 17 and 18.
