Stunning short film explores the underwater realm of manatees

In Sirenia Shadows, a short film by video production house Built By Wildman, a submarine cameraman captures the endangered West Indian manatee placidly gliding through Florida's Crystal River. It's a marvel seeing these sea cows serenely traverse the riverbed (without the risk of getting skimmed by some gaudy cigarette boat).

We lived in Ft. Lauderdale for a year when I was 12. I loooooooved getting a glimpse of these guys in the canals. It was amazing to me that this animal was living so closely and so quietly to where I did. There are signs up everywhere that they are reminding people to be careful and yet, assholes still speed through the canals injuring these poor guys. Stupid people.
