Manatees Warm Up at Florida Power Plant

Posted: Updated:

Freezing manatees are traveling to a power plant in Apollo Beach, Florida to warm up.

The plant releases heated water due to production, and the manatees use it to warm up.

The power plant has used the manatee's annual arrival to put together an educational viewing center on site that's free to the public.

And for those of us without a trip to Florida in our future, you can watch the manatees on webcams on the Tampa Electric Company's website, http://www.tampaelectric.com/company/mvc/webcamwest/.
