Manatee Awareness Adoption Package

The slow-moving manatees are a familiar Floridian sight as they swim, glide, and munch along our warm coasts and springs. Unfortunately, cold stress and boat injuries are common among these gentle giants and Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo’s Manatee Hospital is here to help.  Each manatee that is viewed at our facility is rescued, rehabilitated and released.  Join us today by symbolically adopting a manatee.  Your support can help provide food and expert medical care year round.
