All About Manatees

Come see what's new at Manatee Lagoon - An FPL Eco-Discovery Center! Our enhanced center has fully reopened, and you're invited to come enjoy the new offerings every day through manatee season from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Are you ready to learn all about manatees? Explore these fascinating marine mammals in a fun, yet in-depth virtual look at their biology and behavior, including when and why these animals frequent the waters surrounding our center. Have fun testing your newly-gained manatee knowledge in a quick round of trivia and discover even more by getting answers to your manatee-related questions from one of Manatee Lagoon’s educators, also known as Manatee Masters. Register today to join us for a 20- to 30-minute virtual presentation of “All About Manatees” open to all ages.
