Kings Bay in northwest Florida is an important winter home of the largest group of Florida manatees (Trichechus manatus latirostris) and the only place in the U.S. where visitors legally swim with them. But how is human interaction affecting manatee behaviors? In the July issue of the Journal of Wildlife Management, researchers tracked 32 manatees with GPS tags to better understand what factors affected their movements.

Other articles assess habitat-specific competition for oral rabies vaccine baits between raccoons and opossums; compare lethal and non-lethal methods of population control for harbor seals in British Columbia; examine the challenges created by climate change, wildfire and past forest management in conserving Canada lynx in Washington, and more.
