Save Manatee Forever Stamp

The U.S. Postal Service has announced the launch of the Save Manatees Forever postage stamp. The stamp will be commemorated on Manatee Appreciation Day on March 27.

The will take place at Silver Springs State Park in Silver Springs, Florida.

USPS says, "The gentle West Indian manatee is a vulnerable marine mammal. Manatees inhabit Florida's inland waterways and warm areas of the coastal Atlantic, Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico. Every day, a West Indian manatee eats up to 10 percent of its weight in aquatic plants. Adults can reach 11 feet long and 1,500 pounds. Manatees are slow swimmers and slow to reproduce — a female has one calf at a time and may tend to it for two years."

The stamp features an illustration of a West Indian manatee by Nancy Stahl.

We do need to protect these large sweet creatures.
