Adopt an Animal

Did you know that many animals at the World Aquarium are orphans?  These animals had to be rescued from neglectful homes or pet stores who could not provide proper care.  Most often animals overgrow their habitats because of poor planning or lack of information when they are purchased. Adopting an animal is a great way for you to get involved and help support the ongoing animal rescue efforts of the World Aquarium. Not only does this allow for the charitable organization to keep the animal safe, comfortable, happy and fed, but helps us to educate the public about the fragile status of the aquatic world and help Mother Nature. Your adoption package includes your name on an animal exhibit, an adoption certificate and a fact sheet about your adopted animal. Your donation goes to support the care and feeding of our amazing animals! Adoptions are good for one year and must be renewed annually.
