Spare A Little Care This Holiday Season...

When the thought really counts, giving a holiday gift that matters is as easy as adopting a manatee from Save the Manatee Club. Adopting real Florida manatees for family & friends can be done quickly online at or by calling the Club toll free at 1-800-432-5646. Funds from the Club’s adoption programs go toward their conservation & education efforts to protect the popular, endangered marine mammals and their aquatic habitat. Sarah Barnes, an avid manatee fan from Chicago, adopted a manatee last Christmas for her Mom, Debby, who resides in Alachua, Florida. "I chose Rosie from the Club’s Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park adoption program because she was referred to as the manatee matriarch of the park, which we have visited several times," said Sarah. "We have always loved these gentle animals, & a gift that supports their conservation is worth so much more to us than a material gift." The manatees available for adoption can be viewed on the Club’s website at Three new manatees recently added to the list of adoptees at Blue Spring State Park include Squeaky, the youngest manatee in the adoption program, along with Rocket & Annie. An annual manatee adoption costs $25 & includes an adoption certificate & biography, both featuring a photo of the real manatee you have adopted, a membership handbook, & subscriptions to the Club’s newsletters which feature updated reports on the manatees in the adoption program & a variety of other interesting information. Shipping is free within the United States. Gift adoptions are sent with a personalized holiday message. Or, each new member who joins the Adopt-A-Manatee® program at $35 or more will receive the manatee adoption packet plus a free 2013 manatee wall calendar featuring 12 months of beautiful manatee photos & measuring 12” x 24” when open.
