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 Dolphin

Dolphins continue to face threats to their survival. Dolphins are susceptible to toxins and pollution, so oil spills are especially dangerous to their health. Dangerous fishing practices can entangle dolphin in fishing gear.

How Your Adoption Helps Save Dolphins: Oceana works to protect marine mammals such as dolphins from being caught as bycatch in commercial fisheries. Your donation will also help support our work on Capitol Hill to promote clean energy and protect our coasts from oil pollution. All donations go towards making our world's oceans healthier and safer, for generations to come.
