Manatees Will Get New Safe Passage In Flagler

At a recent meeting in Crystal River,
Manatees headed for a disaster
Manatees Headed For A Disaster
the Florida Fish and Wildlife decided to give 
Manatees a little more room for safe passage
in the Intracoastal Waterways of Flagler Beach;
still all totalled, it is less than three miles long.
This new Manatee speed zone law does not go into
effect until May of 2013 and will only be enacted
between the months of May and September.
The fine for failure to adhere is $60.
For the moment, it would seem that wildlife advocates
and area Boaters are at peace.
How long it will last depends on whether or not the Manatees continue to be safe.
