Volunteer for SMC


Education table on manatees at the Alligator Lake Spring Festival.

Thousands gathered for Snooty's 68th Birthday Bash and Wildlife Festival at the South Florida Museum in Bradenton, Florida. Volunteers were kept busy at Save the Manatee Club's education table handing out coloring books, stickers, and loads of manatee information. New this year at the Club's table, an interactive, informative manatee game where players matched manatees based on their scar patterns. And "Hope," the Club's giant inflatable manatee, was there again wowing the crowds. Many thanks to Club volunteers Tracy McAlpine and Norma Kuehler (in photo) as well as the Club's Multimedia Specialist, Cora Berchem, for all their help at the event.


We Need Volunteers!

You can help Save the Manatee Club by becoming a Club volunteer. SMC volunteers staff tables at manatee-related events, engage in speaking presentations, help out in the SMC offices, write letters and send e-mails on issues of concern to manatees, and report information to manatee researchers. You can make a difference for manatees!

If you are interested in volunteering, please fill out our Online Volunteer Application.
