“Manatee Season” is here, when manatees return to warm water refuges in Florida during the cooler winter months. 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 Lagoonfest West Palm Beach 2017
The 4th annual LagoonFest was held recently on the waterfront in West Palm Beach, Florida.  Save the Manatee Club was invited to participate, and volunteers Kathleen Phillips and Kristina Harper (l-r in photo) set up an education table at the well-attended family-friendly community event.

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.
