Volunteer for SMC


Visitors ont he boardwalk at Blue Spring State Park.

Club volunteers staffed an education table at the annual Pelican Island Refuge Festival, held recently at Riverview Park in Sebastian, Florida. Many attended the event and helped celebrate the anniversary of Pelican Island and the National Wildlife Refuge System. Thanks to our volunteers Diane Morgan (l-r in photo), Tim Carroll, and Lauren Zuzolo. And thank you to our volunteers who are not in the photo - John Warner and Tamara Carroll.


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.

For those wishing to inquire about earning community service hours at the Club's office in Maitland, Florida, please do not fill out the Online Volunteer Application form.
