Why Adopt an Animal?
Your animal adoption helps fund our many education and conservation initiatives, animal rehabilitation work, and important animal breeding efforts.
Name our Sea Otter Pup
Our new sea otter pup is receiving round-the-clock care and otter lessons from our surrogate sea otter moms. But he needs a name! Adopt at the $100 level or higher to submit your naming suggestion for this adorable otter pup. Your donation will help us continue to provide all the support and care this young pup needs.
Adopt an Octopus
Giant Pacific octopuses live in the colder waters of the northern Pacific Ocean. They are highly intelligent and, like other cephalopods, they can instantly change the color and texture of their skin. Help us continue to provide the highest quality care for our giant Pacific octopus by adopting today.
Adopt a Harbor Seal
Harbor seals are opportunistic feeders, meaning they eat many types of food and can adapt to whatever is available. In short, they are not fussy eaters. They need to eat 5 to 6 percent of their body weight in food per day, which can add up to about 20 pounds for a large male. Help us keep our harbor seals full and happy.
