The ultimate addition to any Easter gift basket is a manatee adoption from Save the Manatee Club. There are 35 real, live manatees up for adoption in the Club’s popular Adopt-A-Manatee Program. For a $25 tax-deductible donation, the Club will send a manatee adoption certificate with a full-color photo and a biography of a real living Florida manatee to family and friends. Who wouldn’t love to receive a gift basket at Easter that includes a manatee! Also included in each adoption package is a subscription to the Club’s quarterly newsletter, The Manatee Zone, which features updates on the adopted manatees, and Paddle Tales, the Club’s bi-monthly e-newsletter. And for a $35 tax-deductible donation, each new member receives a plush manatee toy. Funds from the adoption program help protect manatees, Florida’s official state marine mammal. Save the Manatee Club, a national, nonprofit advocacy organization, co-founded by singer-songwriter Jimmy Buffett, has been working to protect manatees and their habitat for almost 35 years.
