EAI scientists have prepared Manatee Protection Plans for several Florida counties.  These plans summarize local information on manatee abundance and mortality, include site-specific measures for reducing the risk of watercraft impacts, and include implementation policies and schedules.  EAI has been approved by state and federal agencies to provide right whale and manatee observers onboard dredges and at construction sites where the welfare of these animals is at risk.  Additionally, under authorization of the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), EAI has participated in the Southeast U.S. Marine Mammal Stranding Network by voluntarily responding to reports of dead, sick, and injured marine mammals that wash ashore.
