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 Polar Bear

Icon of the Arctic, the polar bear is the largest mammalian carnivore and has amazing resilience and power. For centuries, the polar bear has been hunted by native peoples of the Arctic, without numbers declining. However, thinning of the Arctic’s sea-ice by global warming could seriously reduce its access to food.

How Your Adoption Helps Protect Polar Bears: To best protect polar bears and other wildlife, Oceana is focused on addressing all of the threats affecting Arctic wildlife. Your donation goes to support our campaigns to fight climate change, industrial fishing, ocean pollution, and oil and gas exploration and development. All gifts go towards making our world's oceans healthier and safer, for generations to come.
