Slowly, but surely, humanity is destroying this planet. We can see it in the number of animals that have become extinct or endangered due to habitat loss. One animal, the Florida manatee, is making a dramatic comeback!
Conservationists have helped the gentle sea creature’s population surge by 500% over the last 25 years!
But the manatee is still in danger – from humans. Those huge slashes you see on this manatee were caused by a boat motor.
In 2016, 104 manatees lost their lives from this kind of injury.
