"Manatees aren't Cute..."

Scroll through these adorable baby manatee photos.  Notice on the last picture that you can see the size contrast from the mother swimming near it. Changed your mind about manatees being ugly?  Suddenly care a little more about the futures of these baby Sirenians?  You should.  Manatee moms only have one or two babies every two to three years.  That's not very many, especially when you consider how many manatees are killed every year.  Something needs to be done, and it can all start with you.  

 The baby Sirenian at left is not a manatee.  He is a newborn dugong.  Click on him to learn more about this relative of the manatee.
