BONITA SPRINGS, Fla. — Manatees are moving up the imperial river.

They say they counted 20 moving up the river.

The sea cows do this to feed and stay warm during cold spells.

If the Manatees get too cold, they could experience cold stress.

The stress causes slow movements.

If you are boating, be careful to look for Manatees.
