My article Enchanting Manatees of Crystal River is in the latest Alert Diver Magazine Spring 2019. There is hope for Floridas manatee population and hope that its still possible to respectfully encounter these charismatic marine mammals.
FYI part of my manatee population information was based on this data from Florida State Fish and Wildlife (FWC)
And all the manatee photos are recent within the past two seasons.
Plus you have to check out Becky Kagan Schotts portfolio, cover shot and additional ocean conservation articles.
A free digital edition of Alert Diver Magazine can be downloaded on your apple or android device:
(1) go to app store and search "alert diver" (2) download free app (3) download free magazine.
Happy Reading! Carol
