St. Johns River to get improved manatee protection signs

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) will soon begin work to repair waterway markers for federal manatee protection zones in the St. Johns River within Duval and Clay counties. The work begins mid-July and should be completed within four to six weeks.

The FWC is performing routine maintenance and replacing degraded waterway signs in the existing boundaries of the manatee zones. This will improve manatee conservation in the area, and will more clearly mark the boundaries for boaters.



Boaters are urged to use caution, particularly in narrow waterways, while the sign construction is underway.
