2nd Annual ManateeFest On Saturday At FPL's Manatee Lagoon

The second annual ManateeFest is going on this weekend at FPL's Manatee Lagoon in Riviera Beach.

It's an area where manatees gather during the cold weather. The facility even provides a Manatee Cam where you can watch the manatees live.

Manatee Lagoon Manager Sarah Marmion tells us 2018 was a positive year for Florida manatees.

"They were downlisted from endangered to threatened last year and the numers are going up but we're still seeing red tide and boat strikes and occasionally cold stress injuries."

Saturday will be a day of interactive learning about manatees and the environment along with fun events for the kids.

ManateeFest is free.
