Adopt a whale today! Mars is a strong female aptly named after the Roman god of war. Scarred but not broken, Mars has eleven known calves and is an active grandmother, often seen breaching and socializing. When you adopt a whale, you will receive a personalized certificate of adoption, your whale’s photograph, biography and family tree, fascinating facts and figures about humpback whales, a map of their migratory path, and a humpback sticker to show your support. You’ll also receive monthly updates and a WDC’s newsletter with information on how your adoption is helping to save whales and dolphins worldwide.
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!
