It’s spring, and that means a busy time of the year for Save the Manatee Club volunteers. There are many events scheduled for Earth Day and other occasions, and 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).

Seminole College Earth Day
Seminole State College invited Save the Manatee Club to set up an education table at the Oviedo campus for their annual Earth Day event. Students enjoyed learning about manatees while also scooping up a free manatee wall calendar, Club tote bag, and informational sheets & brochures. Volunteers Karen Ann Bunch, Sue Pacansky (left to right in photo), and Esthela Montgomery staffed the table.

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.
