It has been a difficult time for manatees in Florida these past months. More than 10 percent of the entire population has been lost to a combination of life-threatening events, including catastrophic losses from red tide toxins. Funds are needed to help red-tide affected manatees as well as for our other numerous conservation efforts to save manatees and manatee habitat wherever it is threatened.
Save the Manatee Club, an international nonprofit organization, was co-founded in 1981 by world-renowned singer/songwriter, Jimmy Buffett. Funds from its adoption program go toward emergency rescue response for sick and injured manatees, and for waterway signage, public awareness and education, research and more.
