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.

Adopt a Blue Whale

Blue whales are the largest animals that have ever lived on our planet, at up to 100 feet long and upwards of 200 tons. A blue whale's heart is the size of a small car and its call, at about 180 decibels, is louder than the sound of a jet aircraft taking off. After being hunted to the brink of extinction in the 1900s, these remarkable marine mammals remain seriously endangered.

How Your Adoption Helps Protect Blue Whales: Blue whales and other marine creatures are susceptible to toxins in the water like oil and other pollution, such as bilge dumped into the ocean. Oceana works to protect marine animals such as the blue whale from harm by advocating for clean, safe energy solutions. All donations go towards making our world's oceans healthier and safer for generations to come.
