There are three manatee species worldwide: West Indian, West African, and Amazonian. These large creatures average 10 feet long and 1,200 pounds; however, they are incredibly graceful aquatic animals. They also play an important role in maintaining a healthy ecosystem, but they face two major threats: loss of habitat and collisions with boats and ships. Part of the "Endangered Ocean" series.
