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).

Save the Manatee Club Volunteers at the Natural History Festival in Daytona Beach
Manatee adoptions are popular at Save the Manatee Club’s education table during the recent Natural History Festival held at the Museum of Arts and Sciences in Daytona Beach. Visitors stopping by are pleased to learn about the Club’s adoption program with many choosing to adopt one (or more) on the spot. (l-r in photo) Volunteers Karen Kellerman and Janice Nearing explain how the adoption program works to help manatees and their habitat. Also volunteering at our table is long-term Club volunteer Esthela Montgomery.

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.
