The Problem

To educate people about the manatees and their habitat so that they would want to protect them. I also want to inform people of how their actions can affect the manatees and their habitat and teach people things that they could do to help reduce the amount of trash they produce while on vacation or any other time so that they can preserve the natural beauty of an area and its wildlife.

Our Plan

I will go down to Florida and participate in helping remove an invasive species of algae called lyngbea that is choking out and killing all of the native species to the King's Bay area. Which is also destroying the manatee's food source
