a Seahorse? 

Take home a Penguin?

Now you can with our adorable plush adoption animals. Do you know what's even better? You get to help REAL animals!
By being part of Animal Adoption Club at The Florida Aquarium you can directly help our efforts to care and rehabilitate the animals that dwell here. From the simplest preventative steps to the extraordinary measures necessary in critical situations, you can help to provide the very best care for each animal. Each of our animals is a treasured representative of its species, inspiring curiosity and respect for our aquatic world. These animal ambassadors deserve the very best care possible. Best yet, our adoption packages make great gifts for holidays, birthdays, student awards, housewarmings or any special occasion! Due to the popularity of some species, animals may have more than one parent. Not all animals are on exhibition at all times. Adopt-an-Animal adoptions are good for one year.
