A Follow Up with Save the Manatee Club for Manatee Appreciation Day

 

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!  

In honor of #ManateeAppreciationDay on March 27, we put together this amazing video of our trip, the conversations we had and the manatees you are helping! Check it out here.

Traveling 80 miles across the Gulfstream in the Atlantic Ocean can be a daunting task in a boat.

For our May 2019 bracelet, we had the chance to showcase an animal that generally doesn't get a lot of attention when it comes to ocean conservation––the incredible octopus. But thanks to "Octo Girl" and her research, these animals may play an even bigger role in the future health of coral reefs and the ocean.
