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

Save the Manatee Volunteers at Wildlife Fest
Several Save the Manatee Club volunteers helped to educate the public about manatees on November 9th at the Marine Science Center’s Wildlife Fest at Ponce Inlet, Florida. (l-r) Karen Ann Bunce, Sue Carey Lindholm, Janice Nearing, Janneke Bogyo, and Karen Michaels. Also volunteering, but not in the photo, were Kelly and Linnie Hodoval.

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.
