Adoptions are a great way to support the rehabilitation of marine mammals and sea turtles at The Riverhead Foundation for Marine Research and Preservation.
The cost to rescue, rehabilitate and release a marine mammal or sea turtle is immense, and the expenses linger long after the animal is back at sea. Your adoption donations help defray the cost of food, medication and treatment expenses incurred by your animal during its stay at The Riverhead Foundation's facility.
Adopt an animal today, and help support our efforts to save seals, whales, dolphins and turtles!
We can't do it without your support!

-The average cost to rehabilitate a dolphin is $100,000!
-Medications such as antibiotics can cost just as much for seals, dolphins and turtles as they do for humans!
