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 Octopus

The octopus is one of the largest invertebrates as well as one of the most intelligent. It can solve problems, such as negotiating a maze by trial and error, and remember the solution for a long time.

How Your Adoption Helps Protect Octopuses: Octopuses 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 octopus from harm by stopping cruise ship pollution and advocating for clean, safe energy solutions. All donations go towards making our world's oceans healthier and safer, for generations to come.
