Adopt a Whale!

Do you love gray whales as much as we do? Would you like to help our team continue to do the work we’re doing? Consider adopting one of the gray whales profiled on this website!

Select the whale(s) you’d like to adopt along with your name and email address. Upon hitting the “submit” button you’ll be taken to our secure foundation donation page where you can complete the adoption process.

Your adoption fee will be a donation to the GEMM Lab in the Marine Mammal Institute at OSU to support our research and outreach activities, including this website, gray whale photo-ID matching, and distribution of our research findings to various groups to improve understanding and management of gray whales in Oregon waters.

Along with our sincere gratitude, you’ll also receive an adoption certificate for each whale that you select as well as the name of your choice (yours or a dedication/gift) posted under “Friends” on that whale’s profile page.

Step 1 of 2

Each whale adoption is $50 USD.
How would you like your name to be displayed on the whale profile(s) that you have adopted?
Your email address will be used for sending your adoption certificate(s) as well as linking your selected whales to your payment via the OSU Foundation portal.
