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 18, 2019:

The river temp was 59.9° F (15° C). Comparing the river temps and the manatee counts for the past four days, I would say the river temps we were getting were very much affected by the temperature of the spring run. Our river temps for the past few days should have been much lower. Today we counted 340 manatees, which was 60 less than yesterday. The park count was also much lower. I ID’d 188 manatees and found the following Save the Manatee Club adoptees: Lily, Floyd, Lucille, Philip, Annie & calf, Howie, Gator, Moo Shoo, and Whiskers.
