Providing Protection for Endangered Manatees

Walsh Marine makes buoys for a variety of uses. Our latest example comes out of Three Sisters Springs in Florida where Buoys & Floats are used as a protective barrier for hundreds of Endangered Manatees.

Kings Bay is home to the largest aggregation of manatees in a natural environment in the world. To protect manatees from harm, harassment, and disturbance, the Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge created Manatee Sanctuaries in parts of Kings Bay.

As an endangered species, it’s important to protect these Manatees from harm, like boaters and passersby, to build these areas in their natural habitat. In the video below you can see over 300 Manatees relaxing in their zone. Walsh Marine is proud to be involved in the protection of such a special species!
