Adopt a Killer Whale
For over 25 years, the Wild Killer Whale Adoption Program has brought killer whales into the homes of families around the world – sharing stories, news updates, fascinating research findings, and an overall love and admiration for these iconic animals. Through the symbolic adoption of a wild killer, the Wild Killer Whale Adoption Program raises funds to support conservation-oriented research on wild killer whales by the Marine Mammal Research Program. Learning everything we can about killer whales is paramount to ensure the best standards and regulations are set to protect them.
Once widely feared, killer whales are now far better understood than they were only four decades ago. But today there is growing concern for their future. Pollution, overfishing, boat traffic, and other human activities all pose a threat to the whales and their fragile marine environment. Learn what you can do.
