This Easter, Think Outside the Basket

Give a Manatee!

Love those sweet-natured manatees or know someone who does?  Join the Club!  Save the Manatee Club, that is.  Thousands of people around the world have become members by “adopting” one or more of the 32 manatees featured in Save the Manatee Club’s three Florida adoption programs, to help protect the endangered marine mammals.  Manatee adoptions are often given as gifts, and with Easter coming up, this is a great alternative to candy and the usual fare. 

Maureen Dalessio from Pennsylvania adopted manatees for her young nieces and nephew in South Jersey last year for Easter.
