The Perfect Valentine: Send Your Love a Symbolic Adopt-a-Manatee!

It’s that time of year, lovers! Don’t get caught up in that post-New Year’s Mardi Gras blurrrrr without first figuring out what you are going to do for that other important upcoming holiday: Valentine’s! Adopt-a-Manatee’s got you covered. Even if you have more than one beloved who is expecting something special from you… player! – Editor

Celebrate love in a unique and selfless way this Valentine’s Day with the adorable manatee, Florida’s beloved gentle giant. Save the Manatee Club continues to works to address the growing threats to manatees and their aquatic habitat. The club’s ultimate success, however, depends upon the involvement of caring, compassionate people as partners in their efforts. You can help manatees by spreading the love!

This Valentine’s Day, show your love for the special people in your life by symbolically adopting a real, living manatee for them from Save the Manatee Club. With over 30 unique manatees available for adoption, this heartfelt gift is sure to make a lasting impression. Each adoption package includes a personalized adoption certificate. Plus, each has an individual biography of a real, living manatee that has been studied by research teams in Florida.

All You Need Is Love!

Among the remarkable manatees available for adoption is Zelda. This lovely female manatee easily identified by the scars on her back that resemble the letter “Z.” These scars are a result of unfortunate collisions with boats, serving as a poignant reminder to boat slowly, especially around shallow seagrass beds, and to not alter the manatees’ natural behavior by giving them food or water.

Symbolic manatee adoptions start at just $25 and come with a one-year Save the Manatee Club membership. Plus, an award-winning manatee wall calendar, while supplies last! Become a member, and you will receive a quarterly newsletter, The Manatee Zone, providing updates on adoptable manatees and important manatee information. For a limited time, adoptions at the $35 level or above will also include a special gift.

By participating in the Adopt-A-Manatee® program, you are directly supporting Save the Manatee Club in its mission to protect all manatees and their habitat. Funds raised will contribute to emergency rescue, rehabilitation, and release efforts, as well as education and public awareness programs. Additionally, the funds will aid in addressing the ongoing manatee mortality crisis on Florida’s east coast. Make a difference this Valentine’s Day. Give a gift that truly matters. Adopt a real, living manatee from Save the Manatee Club and help protect these gentle giants and their environment.

Please order by Wednesday, January 31, 2024, for delivery by Valentine’s Day. Manatee adoptions also make a great last-minute gift, as personalized adoption certificates can be emailed immediately!

All you need is love!
