Manatee Month…be alert

011116-met-manatee-1

It’s Manatee Awareness Month and the public can obtain free waterway signage, boating banners and decals, waterway cards, and educational posters to boost awareness.

The shoreline property signs warn boaters to slow down for manatees and feature the Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission’s hotline number (1-888-404-3922) to report sick, injured, and orphaned manatees.  The Club also produces outdoor signs for state, municipal, and county parks, marinas, and other sites where human/manatee interactions are a problem.

To obtain any of these free materials, you can email education@savethemanatee.org or call 1-800-432-JOIN (5646) and request these resources.  Educators can also request a free educator’s guide filled with classroom activities and interesting manatee facts.

Save the Manatee Club encourages the public to watch manatees in their natural habitat on the Club’s webcams at ManaTV.org.
