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.
