ADOPT

Adopt a Sea Turtle

If you love sea turtles, and want to help us in our efforts at Gulf World Marine Institute, you can symbolically adopt some of our featured patients! Caring for these animals in rehabilitation is expensive, and every adoption will help aid and support the treatment of these and future patients at the Institute.

$25 SEA TURTLE ADOPTION KIT


For a donation of $25 or more, you can become an adoptive parent of our patient. With the donation, you will receive a 6x8 photo of your animal, a certificate of adoption, information sheet and GWMI sticker. You will be contacted when the turtle is medically cleared for release.
