Symbolically Adopt A Galveston Bay Dolphin Mom This Mother’s Day

If you love dolphins and your mom, Galveston Bay Foundation has the perfect gift for you to give this Mother’s Day. Symbolically name and adopt a Galveston Bay dolphin mom and help advance dolphin research through the Galveston Bay Dolphin Research and Conservation Program.

The program is a partnership between Galveston Bay Foundation and Environmental Institute of Houston at the University of Houston – Clear Lake to study bottlenose dolphins in Galveston Bay. The research is unique few entities focus on studying these dolphins and it is important to understand their patterns and behavior to help protect them.

Dolphin ID #285: She is the mother of #740 (first seen in 2017 as a newborn). We’ve seen her a few times very close to shore feeding up against docks and seawalls. Maybe lucky fans will get to see her from land and identify her with her distinct fin! She sometimes hangs out with another one of our adoptable moms #43. See all available dolphins.
