Manatee

Manatees are seeking warmer waters

We are still seeing them...but they are migrating out.

 

We are a " Do Not Disturb Ecotour"

Fin Expeditions principles are best decribed by

Arrdvark's Florida Kayak Company on Florida's West Coast

  Establishing and producing the

"Best"

Guide lines for Ethical Ecotourism

GOTO> CEOs for Wild Manatees

When a Manatee approaches our group we remain silent and enjoy these rare and endangered marine mammals.

When observing their behavior you will see definite personalities associated with these individuals,

Enjoy these pictures and make some time to to go out and see for yourself.


An ecotour will among other things always:
* Minimize impact,
* Emphasize passive observation,
* Build environmental and cultural awareness and respect,
* Provide positive experiences for both visitors and hosts,
* Provide direct financial benefits for conservation,
* Raise sensitivity to the host area's political environmental, and social climate.


An ecotour will never encourage you to intrude on wildlife and never, ever encourage you to pet or feed wild animals.


At Fin expeditions, we are founded on the core principles of Environmental Ethics and Sustainability.
We believe that true ecotourism is an ethic, not just a marketing tool.

Keeping with the principles of true ecotourism, our encounters feature passive observation and a hands off
approach.

Those who wish to pet and baby wild animals "love" them. But those who respect their natures and wish to let
them live normal lives, love them more." (Edwin Way Teale)

As with the Wild Dolphins we follow viewing guidelines that protect the Manatee.

The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS),

the U.S. federal agency responsible for administering the Marine Mammal Protection Act of 1972,

Level A

Harassment means any act of pursuit, torment, or annoyance which
has the potential to injure a marine mammal or marine mammal stock in the wild.

Level B

Harassment means any act of pursuit, torment, or annoyance which
has the potential to disturb a marine mammal or marine mammal stock in
the wild by causing disruption of behavioral patterns, including, but not
limited to, migration, breathing, nursing, breeding, feeding, or sheltering but
which does not have the potential to injure a marine mammal or marine
mammal stock in the wild.
