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: February 16 - 19, 2017
While I was gone for four days, the following is what happened, thanks to our Multimedia Specialist Cora Berchem. On Thursday, a manatee we have wanted to help for two seasons, Lola, was captured by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission with assistance from the Florida Park Service and Save the Manatee Club. Lola has been transported to Miami Seaquarium for treatment. She has a terrible lung problem that affects her buoyancy and overall health. On Thursday, the park staff counted 45 manatees, but Cora’s count stopped when she came across Lola. The overnight temperatures dropped to 35° F (1.5° C) and on February 19th the park staff counted 146 manatees for the morning. Over these last four days, Cora saw Howie, Nick, Lily, Philip, Lucille, Annie and calf, Aqua, Phyllis, Doc, Lenny, and Paddy Doyle. Another manatee of concern named Swale shot out of the run as the capture of Lola got underway.  He may also have problems, so we will be keeping an eye out for and on him. -- Wayne Hartley, Manatee Specialist.
