While all the sharks sighted in Madagascar bear a data code starting with “MD” for Madagascar (e.g. Michel’s is MD-151), it is easier to remember them by their name, and names are much nicer than database codes. We need your help to name the whale sharks !
To adopt a whale shark, there are 3 options :
To initiate the process, please donate the amount matching your adoption choice via Uningo by clicking on the button below. We will get back to you by email to finalise the adoption. You can also email us directly.
Disclaimer: we cannot guarantee resighting any shark at any time, whale sharks are wild and free ! For this reason we recommend a few “popular” whale sharks for adoption, such as Alphonse, Ernest, Théodore, Zion…, who have been sighted regularly in Nosy Be.
Thanks to your donation, you are directly contributing to our efforts in protecting whale sharks in Nosy Be. Your financial participation will go towards sustaining our small team year-round, replacing scientific equipment such as underwater cameras for our volunteers, while ensuring our field season takes place every year.
We are incredibly thankful for your support, and we are glad to welcome you in our “whale shark parents” club!
