Celebrating Seagrass All Month Long 

March has seen a tidal wave of enthusiasm as Seagrass Awareness Month brought everyone together to celebrate and advocate for seagrasses.

The river temperature dropped to 57.6° F on January 22, 2024, causing 717 manatees to turn up for the count! Aqua was among them, and we managed to get this sweet photo of her during her visit.

Manatee Sighting Update: April 2024

A couple cold snaps earlier in 2024 lead to huge numbers of manatees aggregating at Blue Spring State Park. Get the latest sighting update!

Fundraiser Spotlight: Meet Logan McCool

Just 7 years old, Logan McCool is passionate about manatees and made bracelets to fundraise for these gentle giants.

In November, a volunteer noticed a manatee, who would later come to be known as "Manatee Jones," with a swollen flipper due to entanglement.
