Free Manatee Program Available for School Classes

Manatees at Blue Spring State Park
The new Livestream program is free and makes learning about manatees accessible to school classes across the United States.

Exciting news! Save the Manatee Club has launched a new educational program featuring Manatee Specialist Wayne Hartley and the Blue Spring manatees. The program is free and makes learning about manatees accessible to school classes across the United States. The educational sessions are on the Internet and take place on Livestream, a video live streaming platform.

Wayne Hartley, manatee researcher.
Each program includes a video about Manatee Specialist Wayne Hartley and his work with the manatees at Blue Spring. Participating schools can also submit questions for Wayne to answer.

Each Livestream program includes an educational video about Wayne’s research work and the manatees who live in the wild and visit Blue Spring in the winter. The program also features a question and answer session on manatees. Participating schools are featured in the program and can submit questions from students that may be answered by Wayne in the episode. The length of each program is approximately 30 minutes.

If you would like to participate, please send an email to education@savethemanatee.org.

Please give us:

  1. The name of your school, grade level, and the name of your teacher.

  3. A list of 5 – 10 questions about manatees for researcher Wayne Hartley.

The Livestream program allowed our students to build their research and knowledge on the importance of protecting animals such as the manatee for our future generations. Thank you! –Angela Cunard, Georgia
