If you do hit a manatee while boating:
It is important that you obtain immediate help for the animal. The sooner the animal is located and its condition is assessed, the better its chances for survival. Please be responsible for your actions while on the waterways and take immediate action if any wildlife is injured.
Note: You will not be cited if you accidentally collide with a manatee while obeying speed restrictions.
