Manatee-lovers can now watch the Florida marine mammals at any time thanks to two new webcams.

The Save the Manatees Club announces it’s installed the new live-stream cameras above and below the water at Ellie Schiller Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park on Florida’s Gulf Coast.

The springs are home to three captive manatees as well as being a favorite winter refuge of wild manatees.
