Florida manatees are dying off at a record rate, and scientists are scrambling to figure out why.
- 841 manatee deaths have been reported so far - more than any year on record, in just the first six months of 2021.
- Researchers believe the loss of seagrass beds, which are disappearing due to pollution, are causing manatees to starve to death.
- What can be done to restore the manatee population? Could they go extinct in our lifetimes?
