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 getting warmer in Florida, and manatee season appears to be over at Blue Spring State Park. During the evening and when the manatees are not present, we will air prior recordings. Any people seen in the videos are researchers or other individuals with special permission.


Latest Manatee Update: April 2, 2014
The park counts dropped rapidly from my count of 45 manatees on March 27th as the weather warmed, even though the river reached 65.3F on the 28th. Today I counted five manatees and the park counted three. The river was 70.2 F. Evening temps are predicted in the 60s for now, so this may finally be the end of the season. I recognized three manatees, but they were not adoptees. -- Wayne Hartley, Manatee Specialist
