Adopt-A-Manatee® and Get a Free ORNAMENT

Handcrafted manatee heart ornament

Each new member who joins the Adopt-A-Manatee program at $35 or more (either for you or for a gift) will get a manatee adoption packet (see contents below) and a free manatee heart ornament plus Membership Appreciation Gift (while supplies last).

The heart ornament is handmade exclusively for Save the Manatee Club by artist Kevin Rowley and comes in your choice of a pink or red heart. In addition, each member receives a membership handbook, the Club’s quarterly newsletter, The Manatee Zone, which features updates on the adoptive manatees, and the bi-monthly eNewsletter, Paddle Tales. It’s a nice Valentine’s Day gift and a great way to spread the word about manatees!

Note: New members outside the U.S. will be charged an additional $10 to cover additional postage charges.

Each new member will receive:

  • An adoption certificate, photo and biography of a manatee.
  • A one-year membership in Save the Manatee Club.
  • A 28-page membership handbook with information on manatees.
  • The Manatee Zone Newsletter, four times a year, featuring updates on manatees in the adoption program.
  • Paddle Tales, our bi-monthly e-newsletter.
  • A free handmade manatee heart ornament if you adopt at $35 or more! (If you’re giving the adoption as a gift, please remember to give us the address for your gift recipient).
  • An additional membership gift if you adopt at $35 or more.
