Welcome to the Manatee Rescue & Rehabilitation Partnership


Endangered Florida manatees face many threats including watercraft strikes, cold stress, red tide, entanglement, entrapment, and habitat loss. A concerted effort is underway to rescue, rehabilitate, release, and monitor sick and injured manatees. The Manatee Rescue & Rehabilitation Partnership works as a cooperative of agencies, organizations, and oceanaria, to rescue, rehabilitate, and release manatees.

Our Mission:

To inspire and advance manatee conservation by partnering cooperatively in manatee rescue, rehabilitation, release, and monitoring efforts; improve understanding of manatee biology and health through scientific research; and promote stewardship and financial support through public education.

Our Vision:

To support, enhance, and inspire conservation and stewardship of manatees.
