Diane is an avid amateur photographer/videographer of wildlife. She is active in efforts to stop the harassment of manatees in Crystal River, FL. "This is the only place in the state of Florida where the harassment of manatees is allowed without any enforcement by the law. Most of their efforts are towards the speeding of boats in manatee zones, which is important. But, it is also important that manatees not be driven out of their warm water sanctuaries by humans. Manatees need the warm waters of the springs to rest and conserve their energy on cold winter days.
