You will receive an official Certificate of Adoption for adopting a sea turtle. All certificates include a QR code which can be scanned to verify authenticity. Your name can also be listed on our website, which is easily sharable on social media.

There are four (4) levels of adoption that can help prevent these beautiful endangered species from disappearing from our oceans forever. You can adopt a rescued sea turtle from China or adopt a basking sea turtle from Hawaii.

Adopt sea turtle from China

Adopting a sea turtle from China helps provide the proper food, including vegetables and seafood, that meet the strict nutritional requirements of marine turtles. Additionally, vitamins and minerals are supplemented with their food to maintain a healthy body condition with strong immunity against diseases. Your adoption also supports the local caretaker in the daily cleaning and maintenance of the animal's environment to ensure a safe habitat. We rescue stranded, injured and sick sea turtles, and your adoption of one of these guys (or girls) provides medical care to a rescued sea turtle who might not otherwise survive. Upon recovery, your adopted sea turtle will be released back into their natural ocean home.

Adopt sea turtle in Hawaii
Adopting a sea turtle from Hawaii helps provide public education and security to a wild sea turtle who might otherwise be harassed by the public. Locals have noticed a reduced frequency of sea turtles coming ashore onto the public beach of Hawaii because tourists are disturbing the basking turtles while they rest in the sand. Your adoption support will ensure our volunteers can cover their transportation costs to the beach to guard the turtles from harassment, while providing education to the tourists about sea turtle conservation.
