Snooty (July 21, 1948 – July 23, 2017) was the world's most famous manatee.
Having been born in captivity, Snooty was known by generations of visitors to the South Florida Museum, where he lived in a special aquarium. He contributed greatly to what is known and thought of manatees—and his personality stole our hearts. ...He is already dearly missed.
Snooty's aquarium at the South Florida Museum also hosts and rehabilitates wild manatees that have been rescued. The Museum states that they will continue this important program.
In memory of Snooty, I hope to raise $1,000 by August 9, 2017, to be donated to Save the Manatee Club specifically for the rescue and rehabilitation of these beloved animals. Please read about the network of manatee rescue organizations that the SMC supports.
100% of every donation that is received on this page will go to the Save the Manatee Club, and I also vow to increase the donation of my usual 10% of all denisebrain vintage clothing sales to 25%in support of this cause through August 7. My shop is here.
Thank you so much for your help.
