Lettuce tell you about Manatee Menagerie…

Following the successes of the Tampa Bay Tour of Turtles, BowWow Haus and Chairs for Chairity, the Outdoor Arts Foundation is proud to introduce Manatee Menagerie, the largest public display of artistically designed fiberglass Manatees ever seen.

"Manatee Menagerie" is based on five major principles:

(1) To raise awareness about the plight of the West Indian Manatees found throughout Florida. (2) To raise awareness about the Outdoor Arts Foundation and its efforts to beautify the Tampa Bay Area through creative artistic endeavors. (3) To promote the conscientious businesses who come on board to sponsor "Manatee Menagerie." (4) To bring recognition to participating artists and the Tampa Bay art community. (5) To introduce a fun-filled event for the whole community.

From 2005 - 2006, "Manatee Menagerie" will consist of approximately 50 uniquely decorated fiberglass Manatees displayed throughout the Tampa Bay Area.

Individual Manatees will be sponsored by local businesses and decorated by local artists. In November 2006, all Manatees will be auctioned off with proceeds benefiting the Outdoor Arts Foundation (a portion of these proceeds will be distributed to various Manatee protection and rescue-based organizations).
