Manatee Sighting Network Report Form

If you live along a river, estuary, canal or coastal area in Florida, you can help provide valuable information to researchers who are tracking manatees. When you spot a manatee, please fill out our simple one-page form and send it by email or regular mail to Save the Manatee Club.

The pdf file includes fillable form fields. You can also download an MS Word version. Both forms can be filled out electronically. However, you will need to mark the manatee's scar locations by hand. We welcome any photos to accompany the form. You can send the sighting forms by mail, fax, or email.
