In 2007 I began an “Adopt a Whale Program”. For a donation of $50.00 you will receive a picture of your whale and the data sheet for it. It will be up to you to name it, though gender specific names are not encouraged (very difficult to sex a whale). The Whale can however be named in honor of a person… be creative.
If your Whale is seen again I will inform you of it and provide another picture and data sheet. Below is an example of one of the Whales adopted earlier and the data sheet.

So far over 50 whales have been adopted. They make excellent gifts.
