One of the most important issues today is the state of the environment. There are many ways to help fix all the problems humans have caused, and one of them is saving wildlife, more specifically: manatees and other creatures that live in the ocean. Manatees are gentle, calm animals, and I think they are adorable!
There are too many people, however, who don’t pay enough attention to manatees. Some manatees are killed by negligent motorboats, and others are put at risk by pollution in our oceans. Adults can help save manatees by driving boats more responsibly, or enforcing motorboat laws more forcefully. People need to pick up litter and keep the oceans clean. If you can’t take action directly, there are many charities through which you can make donations to save manatees and other sea creatures.
