Save Our Manatees: How water pollution and seagrass loss is killing Florida's beloved sea cows
benefiting Save the Manatee Club and Friends of the Everglades.
An "unusual mortality event" struck Florida's manatees in 2021, killing off a record number of the beloved marine mammals. The Indian River Lagoon was particularly hard-hit. Learn how seagrass loss and algal blooms — both fueled by man-made pollution — contribute to these deaths during an evening conversation with the Save the Manatee Club's executive director Patrick Rose and Eve Samples, executive director of Friends of the Everglades. This event is coordinated by the Environmental Studies Center, with support from the River Kidz.
