Give A Valentine’s Gift of a Lifetime

How about giving something different this valentines day? 

For the price of those flowers, chocolates or aftershave you could save a baby shark’s life and give a gift your loved one will get pleasure thinking about for a long time.

The Smallerspotted Catsharks available for adoption have all been recovered as fertilised eggs from their mothers landed by fishermen at the main Maltese wholesale fish market. In the past these eggs were simply thrown into the waste bins, but now they have a chance to survive. 

With your support, and with the help of Malta National Aquarium, we keep the egg cases in a safe environment until the babies hatch, and then look after them until they are big enough to be released back where they belong.

What better gift could you give this valentine’s day than this gift of a lifetime.

To let your loved one know, feel free to save or print a copy of our valentine’s image above to add to a card or a message. You can also forward this link to give them some background.  

We’ll be in touch very soon with your adoption pack.Thank you very much for supporting us.

All money donated will be used for research and educational materials. 

So What Happens When You “Adopt a Shark”?

When we receive your completed adoption form and payment of €25, we will send out an adoption pack, which includes details of our recovery and release program and interesting information about this type of shark.

After approximately 6 months we will send  your very own shark eggcase,  just like the one your shark will have hatched from! We’ll also send a picture.

And finally we will keep in touch to let you know the date, time and location of our next shark release, so you have the option of coming along to watch the sharks being set free.

All you need to do is complete the Adopt a Shark form below

and then make payment and we will send out your adoption pack!
