POMPANO BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- Wildlife officers have a message for boaters: slow down for migrating manatees in Florida.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is hosting a news conference Thursday in Pompano Beach to discuss the importance of following speed restrictions in manage protection zones.
November is Manatee Awareness Month.
The wildlife commission says in a statement that when water temperatures drop, manatees move to warmer refuges such as canals, outflows from power plants and freshwater springs.
