It's easy to see why people are so drawn to Florida's large, lovable manatees. But in crowding this endangered sea mammal's winter refuge at Three Sisters Springs in Kings Bay, we're loving them to death.
Without unhindered access to the area's lifesaving warm waters, manatees are subject to potentially lethal cold-stress syndrome. They shouldn't have to negotiate a tourist frenzy when what they need is to rest peacefully.
It's long past time to bring these practices to a stop, especially since there are so many other places for swimmers and visitors within Kings Bay to passively observe and admire manatees.
