Animal Sponsorship ChoicesMake a connection with your favorite Aquarium animals! Sponsoring an animal helps with the daily cost of care—including the best possible medical treatment, food and habitat upkeep. The Aquarium is a global leader in ocean conservation and marine education. Your sponsorship also helps us grow those vital programs so we can continue to make a difference on the most challenging issues facing our oceans.

Help us decide which species is next!

On July 1, we'll introduce the next species in our Animal Sponsorship program. What will it be? We want you to tell us! Take our survey and let us know which of these five species you would like to see available for sponsorship.
