Last night, I found out that November is MANATEE AWARENESS MONTH, a special 30-day holiday founded by the government of Florida to honor and educate people about the state's beloved 'sea elephant' - the MANATEE!
As many of you might know, the Florida manatee has been on the endangered species list, but is slowly beginning to repopulate to safer levels thanks to conservation efforts by the state government and numerous wildlife non-profits.

I decided to celebrate this special month by sharing five different manatee facts that you may or may not have known. Learn something new, and share with your family and friends!

Did you learn anything new about manatees? Do you know something else interesting about them? Or maybe you just want to shout your love for manatees from the mountaintops?

Let's celebrate Manatee Awareness Month together!

Awww, i love those sea cows. <3 We learned all about them at the aquarium on this cool tour they have. We got to pet them and stuff, along with the seals and walrus. :D
I love learning the names of animal groups. Did you know that a group of crows is called a "murder". I like an aggregation. It makes them sound official.
