Adopt a real manatee and help protect an endangered species at the same time. Funds from the Club’s Adopt-A-Manatee program go toward efforts to help protect manatees and their habitat. Unlike other animal adoption programs, the manatees in our adoption programs are real, living manatees with known histories. – See more at: http://www.savethemanatee.org/adoptpag.htm#sthash.ih57EcMd.dpuf.
