Three Sisters Springs

Here we go again,

Three Sisters Springs in Citrus County is in the news again. An Orlando organization called The Save the Manatee is wanting to close the springs during the winter months. The club has started a petition to keep people out of the springs and make the area a manatee sanctuary during the winter.

Sanctuaries are set up in Kings Bay so manatees have a place to stay warm without being disturbed,
but the club says more are needed.

They say manatees would use Three Sisters Springs more if people were kept out.

"We like to share the water but you got to be eco-friendly as well," said Joe Grzeca.

The Save the Manatee Club also believes shutting down Three Sisters would ease crowding near the entrance. Not everyone however, is a fan of the idea.
