Friends of Manatees

STOP manatee exploitation!

Swimming with manatees is not ecotourism. Don’t support businesses that are only exploiting these majestic animals for profit and greed. Manatees are in Crystal River, Florida to survive. It’s a matter of life or death for them. Manatees are harassed from sunrise to sunset 365 days a year. Manatees have the right to be left alone and live in peace.

Don’t buy the lie! Please say “no” to swimming with manatees!
