Veterinarian Mark Lowe talks about the Florida manatee in this video segment from WILD TV. Lowe describes his fascination with manatees which are an endangered species. Manatees have been in existence for millions of years. They are peaceful animals. Each has its own personality. A large public education program helps people learn about the history of manatees and the dangers they face with the decreasing supplies of vegetation and clean water they need to survive. Humans must be aware of how we pollute their water and endanger their survival when we use motorized vehicles in waters where they live.
