Listen carefully to hear a manatee!


Manatees can communicate
with each other by making
squeaks, chips and squeals.


Most manatee communications occur between a mother and her calf. Perhaps you will hear a mother manatee calling her calf if they become visually separated. Manatees also vocalize during times of play, mating and when alarmed.
