Adopt porpoise Michael

Michael is a playful, friendly porpoise. He stranded as a young animal on a beach. He didn’t spend enough time with his mother to learn how to hunt. Michael shares his tank with Dennis. Dennis is also unable to survive in the wild. Porpoises are intelligent animals that like to play with the animal caretakers. Via the underwater windows, you can watch them play. Sometimes they’ll swim to where you’re watching!

What does it mean to adopt a porpoise?

You can adopt Michael for a minimum amount of €72 per year or €6 per month. It is a symbolic adoption. You aren’t the only one to adopt Michael. Thanks to all the adoptees, Ecomare can continue to care for the animals.

What do you get when you adopt Michael?

As a new adoptee, you will receive an envelope at home with a large picture of Michael, all kinds of information about him and porpoises plus an entrance ticket for Ecomare. Furthermore, you will receive the (Dutch) newsletter, a monthly Ecomare update and a new photo every year. You are also invited to our annual donors day.
