Florida Loves Manatees

March 9, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

with Dr. Steven Noll, Professor of History, University of Florida

Attend in person or participate virtually!

This talk examines Florida and its relationship to its state marine mammal- the West Indian manatee.  Looking at manatees throughout history, it tells the story of how this “sea cow” became a beloved symbol of the state itself.  It looks at how humans and manatees coexist and how that relationship has changed over time.  It also investigates the future to see whether manatees can survive in a state based on rampant development in a time of rising seas and climate change.

Free for members.
Non-members: In-person, $10; Virtual only, $5.
