Endangered Manatee New York Times April 11, 1996 The manatee population has suffered a devastating blow so far this year. About 221 manatees have been found dead already. Out of those 221, 128 have no obvious cause of death. Marine biologists have been unable to find the cause of these deaths. They suspect that the Red Tide off of the coast of southwest Florida has some connection with these mysterious deaths. A red tide is a bloom of flagellates which are deadly to marine life, but cause no har

Manatees Quietly, but swiftly, the plump, dark animal glided across the water while making sounds comparable to that of the squeaks and squeals of a whale (Florida Manatee 1). Some would say these aquatic mammals are the ugliest thing below the surface, others would say that these animals are beautiful and resemble portly mermaids, but no matter what anybody says about the manatees, they are unique creatures (Ray and Ciampi 315). They are mammals that are completely harmless, they feed mostly

The presidential canvas of 1876 was at best a gross miscarriage of jus
The presidential canvas of 1876 was, at best, a gross miscarriage of justice. It saw Rutherford B. Hayes, Republican, and Samuel J. Tilden, Democrat, square off in one of our nations most controversial and contested elections. J.S. Black wrote to the Electoral Commission of 1877, The refuge of lies shall be swept away, and the hiding place of falsehood shall be uncovered. (A.M. Gibson, 1885) expressing his view of what history has shown to be the greatest theft of power this nation has ever k

THE FLORIDA WATER STORY
THE FLORIDA WATER STORY Florida is no more than 75 miles from the ocean anywhere inside the state. There are six different areas concentrated on the state. The first area we start with is Apilachicola. This is one of the few natural rivers that remains unpolluted, undamned in the state. Numerous life forms in the sea are nourished by the nutrients which runoff from the land. Also, 90% of Floridaís oysters come form the Apilachicola area. The next stop was to Tampa Bay which at one time was awef

Manatees In 1493, when Columbus sailed to the Americas for his second journey, he and his sailors were the first Europeans to spot the present-day manatees. Because of their amazingly humanlike appearance these ancient sailors went home telling stories of mermaids. When the Spanish came over they hunted and ate these massive beasts. Since the early 1900's the manatee population has dwindled severely. Finally countries and smaller organizations began taking interest in saving the manatees. Laws a

Tourism can give economic benefits, and even environmental benefits, when managed, such as through conserva
