Adopt an Animal

Symbolic Animal Adoption

At The Florida Aquarium, it is our privilege to provide a home to a large variety of animal ambassadors whose well-being is our highest priority. From the smallest reptile to the largest elasmobranch, nothing short of world-class animal care will do. And you can help by symbolically adopting an animal today!

Your support will fund everything from restaurant-quality fruits, vegetables and seafood to preventative and diagnostic veterinary care; from water quality to habitat maintenance and enrichment. By symbolically adopting an animal of your choice, you are helping to ensure the welfare of the thousands of animals in our care and supporting programs that save imperiled and endangered species.

Adoption packages start at just $35 and make great gifts for holidays, birthdays or any special occasion! Domestic shipping only, please.

Our symbolic animal adoption program is currently being reimagined. Please check back as new and exciting features are added. Contact development@flaquarium.org with questions.
