Are you a fan-atee? That’s what we call people who love manatees as much as we do. And you can help us keep those manatees well-fed and happy! 

Tampa Electric's 2nd Annual Run for the Manatees 5K will pass by the Manatee Viewing Center, the cornerstone of Tampa Electric's Florida Conservation & Technology Center (FCTC), and wind through the gorgeous trails on the FCTC campus. Best of all, the unique run will raise awareness and support for Tampa Electric’s manatee conservation efforts by supporting seagrass restoration (a manatee’s favorite dish)!
