It's peak boating season in Florida and the Save the Manatee Club is urging boaters to be on the lookout for the endangered marine animals.

Toward this end, the club offers free banners for boaters to post to warn others when manatees have been spotted in the area.

The club produces bright yellow, waterproof boating banners and provides them free to Florida boaters. By displaying the "Please Slow Manatees Below" banner in motor boats, kayaks and canoes, it becomes easier to alert other boaters to the presence of the slow-moving "sea cow."

The free banners can be obtained by contacting the club via e-mail at jnearing@savethemanatee.org or by calling (800) 432-5646.
