Manatees call the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary home

Wintertime is brutal for manatees. They struggle to survive in colder waters and many manatees starve to death when they can’t find enough food to sustain themselves.

To help save manatees, we need urgent action to restore their habitat, prevent boat collisions, and stop the water pollution causing the manatees’ seagrass famine. Will you make a donation to help support all of our conservation campaigns, including our work to protect starving manatees?
