Adopt a whale today! Mars is a strong female humpback whale aptly named after the Roman god of war. Scarred but not broken by living in captivity, Mars has eleven known calves and is an active grandmother, often seen breaching and socializing with other cetaceans. When you adopt a whale, every adoption contributes to Whale and Dolphin Conservancy goals to ensure every whale is safe and free. With every whale adoption, you’ll receive a personalized certificate with a photograph, biography and family tree of Mars the whale, fascinating facts and figures about humpback whales, a map of Mars’s migratory path, a window decal/sticker, monthly updates and recent WDC newsletters including updates on where your adopted whale has been seen and how your adoption is helping to save whales and dolphins worldwide. PLUS an exciting and educational DVD featuring WDC adoptable humpback whales.
WDC’s Whale Adoption Project first began in the early 1980s. As the first humpback whale adoption program in the world, we have remained the best, as demonstrated by the number of whales who have been sponsored by their original adopters for almost 30 years. In 2014, WDC added two orcas to our adoptable whale family. Often called killer whales for their ability to take town sea lions and other large prey in the wild for food, Fife and Holly are welcome additions to our whale pod. All orca and humpback whale adopters will also receive monthly updates featuring seasonal sightings and personality profiles of the individual whales you adopt. There is an adoption package for everyone and each adoption helps fund our work to free cetaceans in captivity and protect adoptable whales, orcas and dolphins, as well as the ocean habitats on which we all depend. Adopt a whale today to become part of our captivity-free whale-loving family!
