POMPANO BEACH, Fla. -

Wildlife officers are asking boaters to slow down for migrating manatees.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is hosting a news conference Thursday in Pompano Beach to discuss the importance of following speed restrictions in manatee protection zones.

November is Manatee Awareness Month. The wildlife commission says that when water temperatures drop, manatees move to warmer refuges such as canals, outflows from power plants, and freshwater springs.
