Diving deep with manatees

A video explores the threats facing the gentle marine mammal

The Postal Service has released a video about its Save Manatee stamp.

The aim of the stamp is to highlight the need to protect manatees, which were reclassified from endangered to threatened under the federal Endangered Species Act in 2017.

The video features Isaac Cronkhite, USPS chief processing and distribution officer; Patrick Rose, executive director of the Save the Manatee Club; Dr. Martine deWit, a veterinarian with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission; and Andy Garrett, the manatee rescue coordinator for the commission.

The video ends with footage of the gentle giants swimming in their environment.
