When you adopt a Whale Shark with the Shark Trust, you will be supporting current research taking place in the Maldives by the Maldives Whale Shark Research Programme (MWSRP).
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
- A4 picture of a Whale Shark
- Factsheet about MWSRP's research
- Shark Trust leaflets (these will vary according to current campaigns and projects)
- Car sticker
- Set of shark postcards
The higher levels of adoption have been created to allow you to choose the value of your support - the adoption pack is the same for all levels, we simple contribute more to shark conservation.
