Heck yes! We could all use a Manatee Emoji, right?!

A  zoo her in Florida has launched a petition asking for the creation of a manatee emoji.  Lowry Park Zoo in Tampa launched a Change.org position this week to celebrate the species in honor of Florida’s Manatee Awareness Month FOX 13 News reports . “Elephants, tigers and penguins all have emojis, so why not manatees?” the petition states. “By creating an emoji, we are making it easier for people to think about and share their love for these gentle giants.” The zoo is aiming to collect 25,000 signatures, but has so far reached just over 1,500.
