Boat alarm could save manatees!

July 3, 2009

Also known as “sea cows”, manatees are quite possibly one of my favourite animals. My mom and sister love them, too, and we often adopt them for one another at Christmas through the Save the Manatee Club (co-founded by Jimmy Buffett, apparently). Now, according to this National Geographic video, they might be in less danger of getting plowed over by boats thanks to a new high-pitched beeping device (it would require people paying about $100 to attach the device to their boats, but hey, it’s a start). Give it a watch and try not to coo at the sight of a scuba diver getting his noggin sucked on by an adorable manatee!

Vodpod videos no longer available.
