Treasure Coast Manatee Foundation

The Treasure Coast Manatee Foundation, a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization, was established in 1998 by a small group of community leaders. The Foundation’s mission is to support and enhance environmental awareness, education, conservation, and stewardship of endangered species and natural resources, fulfilling its mission through the Manatee Observation and Education Center.


To further its commitment to environmental awareness and education, the Foundation has contributed funding for Manatee Center programs, has awarded scholarships to local graduating seniors interested in pursuing a degree in the field of environmental science, and has given classroom mini-grants to local teachers for classroom projects designed to enhance conservation efforts.


Through volunteer initiatives, citizen involvement, community, business and governmental partnerships, both the Manatee Center and the Foundation are committed to continuing their missions.
