Marine Turtle and Manatee Decals
Each year decals are designed and created by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission to help protect Florida’s endangered sea turtles and manatees. A donation of five dollars or more guarantees the decal of your choice, with current year decals available at the tax collector’s office.
Collectors interested in earlier year decals should visit the FWC Marine Turtle Decal page or the FWC Manatee Decal page for more information.
