A-DOLPHIN

Ever wonder what your favorite dolphin’s name is? Maybe you have seen one in the May River, Port Royal Sound, or off the beach from time to time. Many of these dolphins have been identified and tracked by USCB scientists who photograph their unique dorsal fins, and give them interesting names like Lucky, Stumpy, Nacho, or Beggar.

Now, through a collaboration between USCB’s Lowcountry Dolphin Conservation Program and the Coastal Discovery Museum, you can Adopt-A-Dolphin and learn how to help protect both the Atlantic Bottlenose Dolphins that live here year round and those which come here to feed and play in the summer.

There are two levels of dolphin adoptions, which we call visitor and resident (scientists call them migrants and residents). At the visitor level you get an adoption certificate with a photograph of your dolphin’s dorsal fin, as well as monthly updates. At the local level, you adopt one of our year-round dolphins and also get a t-shirt. Anyone can adopt either level, the visitor level is $50 and the local level is $100.
