The West Indian manatee is one of the most endangered marine mammals in coastal waters of the United States. This group includes a separate subspecies called the Florida manatee (Trichechus manatus latirostris) that appears to be divided into at least two somewhat isolated subpopulations-one along the Atlantic coast and the other on the Florida Gulf of Mexico coast.
