Fill up an Easter basket with a real Florida manatee.  I know that its not a traditional Easter tradition, but if you’re a conservationist and lover of marine life – this is for you! 

An Easter gift adoption from Save the Manatee Club costs just $25, is tax-deductible, and includes a color photo, biography, and adoption certificate of an endangered manatee living in Florida.  Or for $35, a cute 8-inch plush manatee is added to the adoption package!  These much needed funds help protect these gentle marine mammals and raise public awareness.  Think manatees this Easter!  Call 1-800-432-JOIN or visit save the manatee (dot) org. 

Save the Manatee Club is the world’s leading non-profit manatee conservation organization, dedicated to protecting manatees and their habitat.  Singer/songwriter Jimmy Buffett co-founded the organization back in 1981, thirty years ago.  Funds from the adoption program go toward emergency rescue response for sick and injured manatees, and for waterway signage, public awareness, research, and much more.
