Freezing to death in the Sunshine State
Manatees, sea turtles and fish dying in
Manatees - endangered marine mammals - have been among the hardest hit, with over 200 killed in January alone. Carcasses continue to wash ashore.
Widespread fish kills have been reported throughout the state. Multiple species, from small pilchards to larger snooks and tarpons, have been hard hit. And divers have found the remains of numerous juveniles, such as barracudas, grunts, parrotfish and pinfish.
In January, more than 4,500 sea turtles were rescued from the state's chilly waters. The turtles were placed in warm salt water to revive them and allowed to recover.
And in Florida's Everglades National Park, at least 70 crocodiles, more than 60 manatees, and countless plants, butterflies and snakes have died so far this winter.
