Save the Manatee Club reminds Florida residents and visitors to boat responsibly, watch for manatees and also immediately report sick, injured, or orphaned manatees, or a manatee that is being harassed. If you live in Florida, you can get FREE Manatee Awareness Materials mailed to you, like the waterproof waterway card with manatee protection tips and the boat decal with a number for reporting injured manatees (see below for other available items to request). Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and mailing address or call toll free at 1-800-432-JOIN (5646) to request your free public awareness materials.
Save the Manatee Club produces and distributes free yellow banners to Florida boaters with the message, “Please Slow, Manatees Below.” Participating boaters hold the banners up high when they spot a manatee to warn other boaters that manatees are present. Weatherproof boat decals with the number for reporting injured manatees, and laminated waterway cards that feature manatee protection tips, are also available. In addition, the Club provides shoreline property owners with public awareness aluminum dock signs that let boaters know manatees have been sighted in the waterway, and urges them to slow down.
