Red tide will lead to record die-off of Florida manatees, according to officials

It could be a record for Florida. According to state officials, a record number of manatees are being killed by red tide.

“This is probably going to be the worst die-off in history,” said Martine Dewit, a veterinarian with Florida’s marine mammal pathology laboratory.
