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 manatee season is over at Blue Spring, so we are 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: March 25, 2015
The river temp was 82.5° F (28.2° C) on March 21st, and it was only down to 76.5° F (26.8° C) today, but we had another manatee in the run today. Streak was returned to the run today by Manatee Rehabilitation Partnership members, SeaWorld Florida, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, Save the Manatee Club, and the Florida Park Service. Streak came in on December 19th suffering terrible cold stress and was removed and taken to SeaWorld on December 28th. Streak was IDd as a yearling in 2011, so he is four years old, going on five. The manatee transporter arrived about 11:15 a.m. and in just over 30 minutes, he was swimming gently away into the water of Blue Spring run and the St. Johns River. SeaWorld did an excellent job with his rehabilitation. Streak was beautiful. Click here to see before and after photos of Streak and his release. -- Wayne Hartley, Manatee Specialist
