It's always nice when we get the chance to revisit a 4ocean Legacy Partner just to see how things are progressing and why buying a 4ocean Manatee Bracelet is so important to the work they do.
We linked up with two of our favorite researchers from Save the Manatee Club, Wayne and Cora, at Blue Springs State Park in Central Florida to check on their work during the winter manatee season. And what we found was a spectacular site with more manatees than we could count all huddled together trying to stay warm in the 72-degree water!
If you haven't purchased a 4ocean Manatee Bracelet to pull your pound and help with Save the Manatee Club's incredibly important research, grab yours here. Manatees like Una, our adopted manatee, thank you in advance! If you want to adopt a manatee like we did, you can head on over to this page and find a new family member today.
To join the conversation about ocean plastic pollution and manatee conservation, head on over to our Discover 4ocean Facebook Group. Also, make sure to follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to stay up to date on all things 4ocean!
At 4ocean, we love the Great Barrier Reef because it is such an incredibly complex and biodiverse ecosystem. Threatened on many fronts, immediate action is necessary to save this natural treasure for future generations. Discover what our non-profit partner, Great Barrier Reef Foundation, is doing to save the Reef. They have some amazing projects that are in progress and you can check out some of their videos inside, too.
Sometimes we need to think outside the box (or basket in this case) and look for any and all opportunities to reduce our consumption of plastic. Easter is the perfect chance to do so because historically this day is full of plastic. From the baskets to the grass, and the eggs to the candies, we take a look at how you can create a plastic-free holiday for your family this year. This isn't as hard as it may seem, it just takes a little bit of planning ahead of time.
