Roving Naturalists spend their time on our observation deck spotting manatees in Moore's Creek to show our visitors from around the world. They share their knowledge about the endangered FL manatee and the Indian River Lagoon while keeping track of how many manatees they spot within the hour. This is a perfect position for anyone who shares a passion for Florida wildlife. No previous skills needed, all training is provided!

Contact Volunteer Coordinator Trish Parker at (772) 466-1600 ext 3334 if interested. Check out ManateeCenter.com for more information.
