Is there anything we can do to save the Manatee from extinction?

    In the US the primary danger for manatees are boat propellers, fishing nets, and swallowing discarded trash.  Becase manatees have slow reproductive cycles, it is difficult for them to gain numbers in a short time period.  In Florida, fan boats are used where there are large manatee populations so they are not cut by propellers.  There are also manatee conservation efforts that could likely use money for additional resources.
