Volunteers at a manatee training session at Ft. De Soto Park in Florida.
Prospective volunteers participate in a “Manatee Observer” training session at Fort De Soto Park in Pinellas County, Florida. These volunteers will be stationed at the park to educate park goers about manatees and help reduce manatee harassment. In addition to park staff, Save the Manatee Club staff helped coordinate and conduct training. For more information on the program, email

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!
