Nature is sending us a warning. Are we listening? Last year on Florida's east coast over 1,100 manatees died from starvation, which is more manatees than we had alive in Florida just 40 years ago. What is causing the loss of food sources for manatees and other aquatic life? What does it mean for us? Can we do anything about it? Join us for our conversation with Patrick Rose, Executive Director of the hugely influential Save the Manatee Club. Patrick tells us about the warning signs scientists have seen coming for decades, why we've reached a tipping point, and how manatees are offering us an opportunity to save ourselves - our wildlife, our water, our health - by saving them first.
