Support for the Manatee Webcams at Blue Spring State Park was made possible by a donation to Save the Manatee Club as a memorial gift in honor of the late Mrs. Norma Norton, a Florida resident who cared deeply for manatees.

Latest Manatee Update

January 17, 2019:

The river temp continues at 63° C (17° C). The park staff counted 482 manatees, and we counted 399. The water was murky, and we were so concentrated on identification of the manatees that I was never happy with our count. I like the park count. We ID’d 227 manatees. The Save the Manatee Club adoptees we saw were Paddy Doyle, Lucille, Phyllis, Lily, Lenny, Annie, Una, Deep Dent, Howie, Nick, Doc, and Gator. Lucille has a new superficial boat strike of three propeller cuts on her right flank.
