Whale Shark Adoption


  • £25.00 GBP

When you adopt a Whale Shark you'll be helping to fund vital research in the Maldives. So you won't just be helping one Whale Shark, but many.

The Whale Shark (Rhincodon typus) is the largest fish in the sea with only a few species of whale being larger. Individual Whale Sharks can be identified by their unique pattern of spots, similar to a human finger print!  

All our adoption packs are presented in an A4 folder, which contains:

  • Personalised Certificate - add a name and short message (max 20 words) above to personalise your certificate.
  • Poster
  • Factsheets about your adopted shark and research project
  • Whale Shark Bookmark
  • Greeting Card - left blank for your message

We offer 3 different levels:

  • STANDARD = includes items listed above
  • INTERMEDIATE = standard pack + A4 print of Whale Shark
  • HIGHER = standard pack + mounted A4 print of Whale Shark

The intermediate and higher levels also enable you to give even more to your chosen research project.

Text on Adoption Certificate reads:

 'This certifies that NAME has adopted a Whale Shark. Thank you for helping to fund vital shark research. Your adoption is supporting the Maldives Whale Shark Research Programme (MWSRP). Helping Whale Sharks in the Maldives.'

This is followed by your message (max 20 words) - eg Happy Birthday! Love Mum and Dad xx. Or you can leave this blank.

All adoptions are a one-off payment and last 1 year. Packs are  usually dispatched around 5 working days.
