Podcast Episode #49
Beth is a Marine Biologist in South Florida conducting cutting edge research on manatee acoustics. She’s working to understand what exactly are manatees saying? In this episode, we discuss how Beth records the noises these manatees make, why this research is so important, and the current state of manatee populations in Florida. Plus you’ll get to hear two great audio clips of manatee sounds from below the surface! Photo credit: U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
