Manatee and Sea Turtle Decals
Decals look awesome and do great things for manatees and sea turtles!
Your kayak, paddleboard, surfboard, canoe, motor boat or personal watercraft would look awesome with a manatee or sea turtle decal! The decals also look cool on vehicles, laptops, notebooks, in frames or wherever you decide to display them. Best of all, your $5 decal donation helps conserve manatees and sea turtles for future generations. Long may they swim through Florida waters!
"I'm making a difference" manatee decal
This decal shows several manatees, including a mother and calf. The back of the decal notes that the manatee is now classified as a threatened species, rather than an endangered species, under the federal Endangered Species Act. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announced this change in early 2017, a signal that efforts to conserve the state’s marine mammal are succeeding.
"Shield your lights for a sea turtle friendly night" decal
This sea turtle decal shows an adult female loggerhead on the beach against a background of darkened buildings. The back of the decal reports nearly 97,000 loggerhead nests were counted during the 2017 sea turtle nesting season. It reminds people to manage beachfront lights to protect nesting and hatchling sea turtles during nesting season, which continues through the end of October, and offers other tips on helping sea turtles.
Where to get your decals
Every July, the FWC introduces new manatee and sea turtle decals available with a $5 donation. The waterproof decals are designed to look good on a vehicle’s bumper or the side of a boat. Get them when registering or re-registering a vehicle or boat through local tax collectors’ offices across the state.
