How about saving a manatee this Holiday season? Tomorrow, Tuesday, is a Day of Giving — or Giving Tuesday.
The Save the Manatee Club, a 501(c)(3) non-profit group co-founded over 30 years ago by singer-songwriter Jimmy Buffett, offers emergency rescue responses for sick and injured manatees, waterway signage, public awareness and education anad research.
You can adopt a manatee for just $25, which offers you an adoption certificate, full-color photo and biography of your adoptee in Florida. Adopt a manatee for $35 or more and get a free 2013 manatee wall calendar. To learn more about manatees like Squeaky, Annie and Rocket, click here, or see the full list of manatee adoptees. Click on www.manatv.org to watch a live webcam of manatees at Blue Spring State Park in Orange City, Fla.
