Adopt a Manatee

Manatees can weigh nearly 2,000 pounds, so you can imagine they eat a lot! Hugh and Buffett, the resident manatees at Mote Aquarium, eat 75 heads of romaine lettuce every day! It costs $42,000 a year to keep these guys happy. Adopting a manatee helps us pay the food bill for these hungry manatees.

The final date for ordering to ensure Christmas delivery is Thursday, December 19, 2013.
