Make 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.
Sponsorships are currently available for these species, but offerings will change. Check back periodically for new sponsorship opportunities!

Typically the New England Aquarium treats 80 to 100 turtles during a stranding season, but in 2014 we treated 733 turtles! By rescuing, rehabilitating and releasing them, we are making a positive impact on the survival of these species. This summer, sponsor any (or all!) of our three turtle species—the green (Chelonia mydas, left), the Kemp’s ridley (Lepidochelys kempii, center) or the newest species in our program, the loggerhead (Caretta caretta, right)—and 100% of the revenue goes directly to the New England Aquarium’s Rescue and Rehab efforts.
