Three hundred manatees staged an invasion of a Florida National Wildlife Refuge, forcing the Three Sisters Springs in Florida’s Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge to close Monday. The manatees likely came from nearby Kings Bay according to a story by Business Insider. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife asked the refuge to close down in order to give the animals space and protect them from potentially boisterous tourists, according to the article.
