Florida manatees, Trichechus manatus latirostrus, inhabit the waters of Jacksonville year round, with highest concentrations occurring during summer months. An endangered species protected under both the Endangered Species Act of 1973 and the Marine Mammal Protection Act of 1972, Florida manatees have been the subject of state, federal, and university research since the enactment of these conservation measures.
