Program Description:

University of Florida, Historian and Lecturer will speak on the topic, “Florida Loves Manatees!” and why. However, the relationship of Floridians to this gentle water giant has been a contentious one. This program will examine the interactions between humans and manatees in a historical and ecological context and even attempt to look into the future (rarely the realm of the historian!) to see what may happen to manatees!” Steve Noll is a master lecturer in the department of history at the University of Florida. He has written extensively on 2 widely different subjects- disability history and Florida history. He also works extensively with the Florida Humanities Council, speaking around the state on subjects related to Florida history.
