Free Manatee Program Available for School Classes
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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please give us:
- The name of your school, grade level, and the name of your teacher.
- The date of the program you would like to attend.
- A list of 5 – 10 questions about manatees for researcher Wayne Hartley.
- The name of your adopted manatee (if you are participating in our Adopt-A-Manatee program).
We will send you an email that confirms the date of the program for your class and gives instructions for accessing our Livestream channel. Upon completion of the program, your class will receive a certificate of participation. We hope you will join us!
