It’s True!

  • Three species grace the world’s rivers and coastal waterways: The W. Indian, the Amazonian, and the African manatee.
  • The primary threats to the endangered manatees are human related: hunting, habitat loss, and fatalities from watercraft.
  • Unique among mammals for having only molars, the manatee is the only plant-eating marine mammal on Earth.
  • Seafaring lore abounds with sailors’ tales of “mermaids”—most likely manatees or dugongs (a Pacific Ocean relative).
