We could use your help to educate others about manatees! Come volunteer with us as we set up education booths across the state at a variety of festivals and fairs. If you’re passionate about manatees and have some time to spare, fill out our Online Volunteer Application (see link on this page).

Volunteers at Turtle Day in Ponce Inlet 2018
Volunteering and doing good for others provides a great sense of pride and accomplishment. There are volunteer friends to make and manatees to help by joining our Volunteer Team today. Click the following link to fill out an online volunteer application form. In the above photo, volunteers (left to right) Aimee Krivan, Janice Nearing, and Laura Frenchik staff a booth for the Club at Turtle Day, an annual April event, held at the Marine Science Center, in beautiful Ponce Inlet, Florida. Volunteers Terry Nearing, Karen Michaels, and — new to our team — Angela Muko also helped that day.

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.

Thank you to Save the Manatee Club volunteers.
