Why Make an Adoption?

Many of the world’s most iconic creatures rely on the ocean for their habitat and food - but our oceans are in trouble, and we need your help to save them. Adopting a sea creature is the perfect gift for friends and family, and supports Oceana’s critical work protecting the oceans and the endangered animals that call them home.

How Your Donation Helps the Oceans

Your donation will help protect our oceans and save endangered animals by helping us prevent oil spills that kill sea turtles, seals, and dolphins and harm our coasts; protect polar bears and penguins from climate change and oil and gas development; and put an end to shark finning, bottom trawling, and seafood fraud. All donations go towards making our world's oceans healthier and safer, for generations to come.
