Manatee Web Cams!

Manatees need warm water to survive. In spite of their size, they have relatively little body fat, and their metabolic rate is low compared to other marine mammals. Water temperatures below 21° C (70° F) usually cause manatees to move into warm water refuge areas such as natural springs or at warm water effluents of power plants.

There are lots of places to see manatees in the winter. But if you don’t live in Florida or can’t make it to a manatee viewing area on a chilly day, you can still observe them by going to several live manatee cams on the Internet. Just click on the manatee cam links or photos below to view.

Remember, manatees will gather at warm water areas in the winter when the weather is cold in Florida.
