-A A +A
By Claude Lewis

Manatee Awareness Month continues at Manatee Springs State Park on Saturday, Jan. 26, featuring the folks from the Sirenia Project, United States Geological Survey, Florida Integrated Science Center.

They will have a display set up from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. at the end of the boardwalk where the springs empty into the Suwannee River.

The Sirenia Project is part of a federal program dedicated to study the life history and travel patterns of Florida manatees.

They will show how photo identification is done, matching scar patterns from manatees run over by boats. They will also show how radio tracking is done.

Amy Teague and Susan Butler out of the Science Center's Gainesville office will be available to answer questions.

For the kids, there will be a game on the subject of identifying manatees.

There will also be photos, posters and manatee bones on display.

The display is free to those attending the park located just west of Chiefland.
