Adopt a whale shark

Support the project

You can adopt one of Nosy Be's whale sharks!

You can either name your own whale shark or adopt a readily named whale shark.

Name and adopt a whale shark

This one-off contribution means you get to name a shark with the name of your choice, for life! You will be sent monthly updates each season about your shark, as well as our regular newsletter and a certificate by email.

You can also simply adopt a shark who already has a name (someone said Michel?), a shark you liked, or a shark whose name you like. All the sharks on our database have a name, as well as a data code.
