Voices for Biodiversity

Save the Manatee Club

Save the Manatee Club is a national nonprofit and membership-based organization established in 1981 by singer/songwriter Jimmy Buffett and Bob Graham, former Florida Governor and U.S. Senator. Our mission is to protect manatees and their aquatic habitat for future generations. We concentrate our efforts on reducing the negative impacts to manatees and their aquatic habitat caused by human activity through increasing public awareness and education; sponsoring research, rescue, rehabilitation, and release efforts; advocating for strong protection measures, such as boat speed zones and sanctuaries; and taking legal action when appropriate.
