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 an Orca

Intelligent, vocal and highly sociable, orcas are the largest hunters of warm-blooded prey. Their diet includes fish, squid, birds, seals and other whales. Their hunting strategy is remarkably varied: they deliberately upend ice floes to tip seals into the sea and they even lunge onto beaches to catch seals lying near the waterline.

How Your Adoption Helps Protect Orcas: Orcas and other marine creatures are susceptible to toxins in the water, such as oil and other pollution. Oceana works to protect marine mammals such as orcas from harm by advocating for clean, safe energy solutions. All donations go toward making our world's oceans healthier and safer, for generations to come.
