Manatee Alert helps users be better informed, protect these threatened animals, and contribute to preserving our environment.
* Displays manatee protection and speed zones for Florida based on state data including effective dates and times and restritions
* When location services are enabled on supported iPhones and iPads, provides safety and conservation messages in real-time based on user location
* Allows users to submit sightings of injured, distressed, or harassed manatees to the proper agencies
Throughout the busy summer recreational boating season, manatees are especially vulnerable to the heavy boat traffic moving through the waterways in every direction - this app helps waterway users be aware of existing restrictions.
