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.

Florida is known as the "Fishing Capital of the World," but in recent years, the world-renowned fisheries of the coastal estuaries and Everglades have been in decline as a direct result of decades of water mismanagement. To raise awareness about a unique ecosystem on the verge of collapse, we released the Everglades Bracelet in partnership with Captains For Clean Water, a nonprofit organization who's been on the front lines of the fight for the restoration of this UNESCO World Heritage Site.

We teamed up with the Miami Police Department Marine Division and their Youth Police Explorers to clean up Pace Picnic Island in Miami's famous Biscayne Bay, which is home to many endangered species and other fish and animals that need protection from ocean plastic pollution. And, wow, wait until you see some of the things that we found during the cleanup.

What's Wrong With The River of Grass?

When most people think about the Florida Everglades, the last thing they probably think about is Disney World, EPCOT, and Universal Studios. But the reality is, just south and east of these world-famous Orlando theme parks, there is a little-known waterway called Shingle Creek winding its way behind such luxurious resorts as the Ritz Carlton, the Rosen, and JW Marriott. Surprisingly enough, this is where the water story begins –– this is where Everglades begins. And unfortunately, where the problems begin, too.
