Volunteer for SMC


Disney VoluntEARS help out at Save the Manatee Club
Students from Bridgewater Middle School help out at Save the Manatee Club.

Walt Disney VoluntEARS along with students from Bridgewater Middle School, and some of their parents, helped the Club get ready for the holiday season by assembling 2,000 adoption packets and working on other projects for us at the Club's head office in Maitland, Florida. Save the Manatee Club extends our deepest gratitude to all who generously gave up their Saturday to help us and the manatees.


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!
