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: The weather is warmer in Florida, and manatee season at Blue Spring State Park is over. We are currently alternating our livestream with prior recordings or recordings from the season. You can also scroll down the page to see other manatee videos from the web cam.

Latest Manatee Update: July 11, 2017
There has been a good bit of activity on the webcam outside the season as reported by Cora Berchem, Save the Manatee Club's Multimedia Specialist. On July 8th, Lucille came in with a very small calf. Earlier we had a summer visit by three generations as Ann (with a new calf), Amber, and Amber’s new calf were in the run at the same time. Amber is Ann's daughter. This may be frequent in winter but not summer! Other manatees have been in from the past season. Margarito made a short summer visit in April. Some like Peaches are related to adoptees. Peaches was the first calf of our much missed Georgia (Georgia passed away in 2015). We also look forward to reports from Sea2Shore like the one biologist Monica Ross sent on Oria with calf in a nearby spring. Sea2Shore keeps an eye on manatees in many other springs along the St. Johns. -- Wayne Hartley, Manatee Specialist
