Looking for the perfect Valentine’s Day gift for your favorite scuba diver? Sure, you could give candy or flowers, but adopting a sea turtle or other marine animal on Oceana’s website helps the conservation agency continue its important work.
Many of the world’s most iconic creatures like sharks, sea turtles and whales rely on the ocean for their habitat and food, but they need our help to keep their critical habitat healthy — and the marine conservation group Oceana needs your help to do this. Adopting a sea creature is the perfect gift for friends and family, and supports Oceana’s critical work protecting the oceans and the endangered animals that call the ocean home. And unless you’re giving your special someone an engagement ring this Valentine’s Day, you can avoid shopping for gifts that won’t have nearly as lasting an impact.
Adoptions are available starting at $30, but at the $50, you’ll get a stuffed animal toy. And you want a stuffed animal, don’t you? Oceana has adoptions for sea turtles, blue whales, orcas, dolphins, penguins, polar bears, clownfish, sharks and more.
