Adopt a Dolphin

Help support the work of MWT and adopt a Risso's dolphin today!

Risso’s dolphins are beautiful, majestic and intelligent animals but their watery world is suffering: Climate change, pollution, boats and over fishing are just some of the threats to our dolphins.

By adopting a dolphin you help protect the dolphins and porpoises living around the Isle of Man and help MWT's work to conserve our Living Seas for the benefit of all our marine creatures.

Your donation will go towards helping Manx Whale and Dolphin Watch learn more about Risso’s dolphins and helping Manx Wildlife Trust with its marine conservation work.

Not only will you be supporting this vital work, but you’ll also be sent a great adoption pack with:

  • A specially made, cuddly Risso’s dolphin soft toy;
  • an information pamphlet filled with facts about Risso’s dolphins and where they can be seen around the Isle of Man;
  • a personalised adoption certificate;
  • special facts about your chosen dolphin; and
  • a twice-yearly update about your chosen dolphin.

Choose from one of three dolphins, all regular visitors to the Island's coast:

General Muck: From his size and many scars, we think this is one of our male dolphins. He’s usually being very sociable in a group with lots of other dolphins. Goblin: We think he is another one of our male dolphins, because of his many scars. He is usually the most inquisitive dolphin who approaches the boat first (photo right). Breeshey: Frequently seen in Manx waters since our first sighting of her in August 2010, she has a distinctive sickle shaped dorsal fin. Breeshy has been spotted with two calves in that time, one in June 2011 and another in July 2013
