Folks both young and old braved the cold to come out Saturday morning to Manatee Springs State Park, where members of the U.S. Geological Survey’s Sirenia Project held an informative exhibition on the exciting technologies and techniques used in tracking area manatee populations.

In addition to traditional VHF tracking methods, visitors were also shown new, high-tech digital and GPS (Global Positioning Satellite) tags, which allow researchers to update tagged manatee positions every 15 to 20 minutes and pinpoint their location to within several yards.
