Adopt a real manatee or renew your membership. Funds from the Club’s Adopt-A-Manatee program go toward efforts to help protect manatees and their habitat. Unlike other animal adoption programs, the manatees in our adoption programs are real, living manatees with known histories. To see the manatees in the adoption program, click the blue “Adopt or Renew Online” box below.
