It's A Fact
Each one of a manatee’s teeth is a molar. They have what are called “marching molars”: new teeth form at the back of the jaw, wear down as they move forward, and eventually fall out. Discover more.

Fertilizer-Free for Manatees
We can protect critical habitats for manatees, other aquatic life, and for our own future generations by reducing human sources of pollution including fertilizers, improperly treated sewage, leaking septic systems, and stormwater runoff. Take our pledge to be Fertilizer-Free for Manatees!


Volunteers participating in a cleanup at Blue Spring State Park Join A Summer Cleanup!
In May, we learned about why debris in waterways is dangerous to manatees and other wildlife. Now, let's put that knowledge into action. Get involved wherever you are by:
  • In Florida: Visit SMC's events page to find a scheduled cleanup near you!
  • Everywhere: Join our six-week virtual #Cleanup4Manatees wherever you are... you don't need to live near manatee habitat! Simply post a picture of your cleanup efforts on social media (Instagram, Twitter, Facebook) and use hashtag #Cleanup4Manatees. Read more on the SMC Facebook page.
