Endangered Species Week- Craft Day

We’re making a manatee bookmark today. These amazing marine mammals are listed as vulnerable and there is much that we can do to help them; like making sure their ocean and river habitats are free of trash. Also making sure if you are boating in their habitat you go slow as not to hurt them. Lastly, help reduce the pollution that goes in our waterways, by using natural cleaning products. Let’s get started on this adorable bookmark that will remind you how neat manatees are!
