Endangered Manatee Spotted Off R.I.
http://www.lasvegassun.com/sunbin/stories/tech/2006/aug...

WARWICK, R.I. (AP) - An endangered manatee made a rare appearance in Rhode Island waters during the weekend, a state Department of Environmental Management official said.

The manatee was seen Sunday in Greenwich Bay off the coast of Warwick. The large marine mammals are usually found only in the warm waters of Florida and the Carolinas.

2. Yeah we had
a plethora of Portuguese Men of War in JUNE up here this year. They never were seen here prior to this year before August. But "there's no such thing as global warning." /sarcasm
