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. Their 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!

Symbolically adopt an animal today!

Your support will provide important dollars needed for everything from restaurant-quality fruits, vegetables and seafood for a healthy diet to preventative and diagnostic veterinary care; from water quality to habitat maintenance and enrichment. Your symbolic adoption helps deliver the love, care and compassion our animals deserve.

But that’s not all!

By symbolically adopting an animal of your choice, you are helping to ensure the welfare of the thousands of animals in our care, and you are also supporting programs that save imperiled and endangered species and so much more.

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