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 a shark illustrated A4 folder, which contains:

  • Personalised Certificate - add a name and short message (max 20 words) above to personalise your certificate.
  • A4 Poster
  • Factsheets on Your Adopted Shark & Research Project
  • Whale Shark Bookmark
  • Set of Shark Postcards

Text on 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.

We've created different levels to give you the option of donating more to your chosen research project. But the adoption pack is the same for all levels.
