Offshore drilling is an issue that affects Florida's environment and its unique species, including manatees. Save the Manatee Club has joined a coalition of groups working to protect Florida's beaches, and we need your help!

What You Can Do:
  1. Sign a petition to protect Florida's beaches from needless and harmful oil drilling.

  2. Please write your state senator and representative and tell them to keep the rigs out of Florida. Tell them you support protection of manatees and our aquatic ecosystems and believe that there are better solutions to our energy needs.

    If you would like to send an individual message, you can get contact information for your Florida legislators by going to www.congress.org. Just enter your zip code where it says "Get Involved."

  3. After you send your letter, get your city and county involved by asking them to pass a resolution opposing offshore drilling. Get more info >>

    Thank you for taking the time to help protect Florida's environment and its unique species!
