FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — The manatee’s 47-year run as an endangered species may soon come to an end, as the federal government assesses whether the tubby marine mammal can look forward to a brighter future.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announced a preliminary conclusion Tuesday that the manatee’s prospects have improved to the point where it “may be warranted” to reclassify the species from endangered to threatened. The announcement triggers a more detailed, yearlong scientific review that could culminate in stripping the manatee of the endangered status it has held since 1967.
