ADOPT A DOLPHIN FROM SLOVENIA!


Adopt a dolphin from Slovenia and support conservation of dolphins and their environment in the northern Adriatic.

By adopting a dolphin you support the research of marine mammals in Slovenia and the northern Adriatic. Also, the aim of this campaign is to share our joy, knowledge and experience of these incredible animals and draw attention to the importance of marine conservation.

The adoption is symbolic; it does not mean that you need to take care of the dolphin, as he or she will continue to live freely in our sea.

You can adopt one of the 10 dolphins that are sighted most frequently and that we find most interesting due to their behaviour. Today we know about 150 individual dolphins that live in Slovenian and adjacent waters. About half of those are encountered regularly.

 

With the donation for the one-year dolphin adoption, you will financially support our work and thus contribute to the conservation of the northern Adriatic and its biodiversity.

Let us mention just a few examples of how you can help:

  • a donation of 30 € covers the cost of transport and food for the team of volunteers that are carrying out fieldwork;
  • a donation of 40 € covers the cost of a half day of fieldwork with the research vessel;
  • a donation of 80 € covers the cost of a full day of fieldwork with the research vessel;
  • a donation of 120 € covers the cost of buying binoculars, which are an indispensable tool for our work.

Every adopter receives an adoption certificate which includes: the adopter’s name, the name of the dolphin, a biography of the chosen dolphin with his best photos (all in English language). Adopters will also receive a gift: a Morigenos T-shirt and a postcard.
