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.
