CBS News has reported that The Florida manatee, a state symbol that was once on the verge of extinction, has made a big comeback. Manatees were recently reclassified from endangered to a threatened species. Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo is one of three acute-care facilities for manatees in Florida where vets heal them, and in some cases just try to save their lives. Now, after decades of bringing the manatee population back to life, the issue is whether they still deserve to be treated as endangered.
Some worry the enormous mammals will lose special protections they need to save them from their number one threat — people.
