Show Notes

On this month's segment of "Speak Up for a Species" here on A Walk on the Wild Side, we are highlighting the Florida Manatee (Trichechus manatus latirostris ). Listen in as host Kyle Kansman, a 4th-year veterinary student at Michigan State University, talks about the Florida Manatee, the threats against their population, and why 2021 has been the deadliest year on record.    At the end of the episode, Kyle brings back "Fact or Fiction", a true or false game for you to test your knowledge and see if you qualify as a manatee maniac.  For updated and current information on the Florida Manatee, please also visit
