~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Manatees are large sea mammals which are very friendly and peaceful and can be found in the West Indian Ocean.
Whilst West Indian manatees were considered endangered for the last 40 years, their numbers are now on the rise, thanks to increased awareness and conservation efforts. Unfortunately manatees in Africa and the Amazon aren’t so lucky and more work needs to be done to ensure they are protected from threats such as boat collisions, hunting & fishing and oil spills or pollution.

My aim is to provide a product that reduces our impact on the environment whilst also educating people about endangered and threatened animals from around the world.
I try to use sustainable and recycled materials (upholstery ends from a local upholsterer) wherever I can when creating my toys to reduce impact on the environment. Because of this, fabrics used may vary from those in the photographs.
