Wild Manatee Cams at Blue Spring State Park
Support for the webcams was made possible by a donation to Save the Manatee Club as a memorial gift in honor of the late Mrs. Norma Norton, a Florida resident who cared deeply for manatees. "Mrs. Norton's love for manatees will inspire so many people from all walks of life through Internet and webcam technology. People everywhere will get to know manatees and come to love them, as Mrs. Norton did," said Patrick Rose, Executive Director of the Club.

Please Note: We are now livestreaming during the day and featuring prior recordings in the evening. You can also scroll down the page to see other manatee videos from the web cam.

Latest Manatee Update: December 8, 2016
The river remained 69° F (20.5° ) today, but the manatee count got as high as 48. Cora Berchem, Save the Manatee Club's Multimedia Specialist, and I did an Abundance Survey for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission today. The Abundance Survey is a statewide count that we participate in. This involved counting the manatees three times with breaks between. First, we got 43 manatees. The next count, we got 43, but they were not all the same manatees. Some of the manatees left and others came in. The third count was 48. Of those, I IDd 47 manatees, including Floyd and Aqua. -- Wayne Hartley, Manatee Specialist.
