If you are just getting started, you may want to begin with our Manatee Facts page. Next, check out our Manatee FAQ page. You’ll find several other topics on our section menu, such as Manatee Migration, Tracking, Rescue and Rehabilitation, and Sirenians of the World.

Teachers and Students:

We have a variety of resources at our Education Materials page. There’s some links to resources for both educators and students.

Interested in Seeing Manatees?

Go to Manatee Viewing Areas or watch our Webcams at Blue Spring State Park and Ellie Schiller Homosassa Springs State Wildlife Park. We’ve got lots of videos at our YouTube page. For some cute mom and calf photos and video, check out the Reproduction page.

Protection Tips:

We’ve got protection tips for boaters and some for divers and swimmers. If you boat in Florida, get one of our free waterproof banners. Boaters can also get a free boat decal, or you can get a free public awareness sign if you are a Florida shoreline property owner. These can be found at our public awareness materials page.
