Meet the Dolphins
The six dolphins available here for adoption, are just a few of the individuals already photo-identified by Ocean Conservation Society research teams. You can adopt them into your family and help them remain healthy and safe with a tax-deductible minimum donation of $50.00 (or $100.00 if you wish to include a Pillow Pets™ 18-inch dolphin). Unlike other adoption programs where donations are used to cover administrative costs, your donation will go entirely to support on the water dolphin research.
The Ocean Conservation Society research team has recently updated the matching of coastal and offshore bottlenose dolphins observed in Southern California waters. Since 1997, we have analyzed tens of thousands of bottlenose dolphin images and photo-identified 647 distinct individuals. Of these, 375 were coastal, 241 offshore, and 31 were present in both coastal and offshore waters. Our matching work is ongoing.
