…another day at the Manatee Viewing Center’s 25th Anniversary!

More than three million visitors of all ages since 1986 have come to Tampa Electric’s environmental education facility in Apollo Beach to experience Florida-friendly butterfly gardens, vibrant displays, a 900-foot tidal walk, games, a hurricane simulator and – when Tampa Bay water temperature falls below 68 degrees Fahrenheit – manatees!

From home, you can operate the center’s east and west Web cameras.

    I love these type of facilities. Makes one appreciate what we share this planet with.

    This is without a doubt my favorite place. Absolutely the most natural reserve of its kind. The mammals, fish and birds can come and go as they please, nothing here to restrict them.

      And that’s the way it should be. We need to be more aware of the others we share this planet with, especially the ones we are doing our best to make extinct, and places like this will go a long way to achieving that.
