Volunteer for SMC


Education table on manatees at the Alligator Lake Spring Festival.

The Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens celebrated national Endangered Species Day recently, providing visitors with an opportunity to learn more about animal conservation and the actions the public can take to help protect wildlife. Save the Manatee Club set up an education booth at the event. Volunteer Deb Brown (in photo) had a manatee stamp ready for the many youngsters who stopped by, and her husband Doug, also a Save the Manatee Club volunteer, shared information and answered questions.


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. For eligibility and availability, contact Janice Nearing, the Club's Volunteer Activities Coordinator, at jnearing@savethemanatee.org or call 407-539-0990.
