TotalBank donates manatee sculpture to Zoo Miami to promote conservation

president and market manager at TotalBank, are pictured with the manatee sculpture.

TotalBank recently donated the sculpture “Total Peace” by local artist MANO to Zoo Miami. The artwork, now situated just south of the zoo’s new Playworld Playground area, depicts a manatee with its offspring and originally graced the corner of Red Road and Sunset in front of TotalBank’s Red Sunset Banking Center.

The sculpture was a part of the South Miami Manatee Fest, a public art event used to raise awareness for local natural resources, waterways, wildlife and aquatic treasures.

TotalBank supports Zoo Miami’s commitment to worldwide conservation and its efforts to heighten appreciation for the world’s wildlife in the children of our community.
