Humpback Whale Adoption Program

When you adopt a whale, you support the critical research work Ocean Alliance is doing to conserve whales and their ocean habitat.

Adopt Now

Ocean Alliance, one of the oldest, most well respected whale research and education charities in the world, was founded by noted whale biologist and conservationist Dr. Roger Payne in 1971.

From Dr. Payne's discovery that whales sing (copies of these recordings are available with Deluxe and Corporate adoption options) to Dr. Iain Kerr's innovative use of drones to collect biological data on whales, Ocean Alliance has been pioneering benign whale research for more than four decades. 

By adopting a whale, you are directly supporting the programs and activities we run to protect whales and their ocean environment through research and education. You can even choose which program to support!

The whales we offer with this program are those that spend their summers off the coast of New England, and particularly Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary, not far from our headquarters in Gloucester, Massachusetts. Together with our partners at Seven Seas Whale Watch we have chosen 30 of the most charismatic and regularly seen whales, some of which have been returning to feed in the waters of Stellwagen for as long as 40 years!

Below, you can choose from our five most popular whales. To see all of our whales click here.
