I'm not sure I've ever heard of a "save the lemmings" campaign.

Considering how much effort Florida puts into protecting Manatees and their occurrence on signs, I'm actually sort of surprised there isn't already a Manatee emoji. Had emoji been "invented" in Florida there certainly would've been one already!

Subject: Manatee emoji?

If enough people sign the petition, will Unicode add a manatee emoji?
And, how about wolverines and lemmings? Are any petitions underway for them? How many signatures on a petition would be needed before Unicode would consider adding a non-existent character to the repertoire?

Best regards,
