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: Manatee season has started at Blue Spring, but when manatees are not present, we will be featuring prior recordings. You can also scroll down the page to see other manatee videos from the web cam. Any people seen in the videos are researchers or other individuals with special permission.


Latest Manatee Update: January 23, 2015
The river temperature was 63.8° F (17.7° C) today. I counted 73 manatees and identified 36. The only adoptee in was Lucille. I tried to observe "S135/14," our high-floating manatee, but the wind that was to rise after 1:00 p.m. was already creating ripples before 9:00 a.m., making it harder to see. The low temp tonight is supposed to be 60° F and the high tomorrow 59° F -- interesting. There's also an 80% chance of rain and 30 mph winds. But it is the Blue Spring Manatee Festival, so I shall be there to at least try a Roll Call! -- Wayne Hartley, Manatee Specialist
