    the link above is actually to a very long article (with a couple of really annoying pop-up adverts) with all sorts of stuff about the issues around the down-listing, especially with regards to boaties. There are also some interesting stats at the bottom about manatee deaths, and near the top a cool photo of over 1000 manatees gathered at a warm-water discharge.

    Well worth reading the article.
