Manatee Tracking

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.

Have you ever wondered where manatees go when they aren’t at Manatee Lagoon? Thanks to our friends at Clearwater Marine Aquarium Research Institute, we are now able to track certain manatees year-round. Scientists attach tags to manatee tails, allowing scientists to study the movement patterns of manatees, track rehabilitated manatees after their release to monitor their health, and develop site-specific regulations such as slow speed and no-wake zones.

Below are some of the manatees that we've previously tracked or are currently tracking. Please check back soon for more updates on where in the world these manatees travel to next!
