School and Kindergarten dolphin adoption
Our activities in conservation have always had a strong commitment to education of children. Children are very sensitive to information they receive, so we strive that those we provide are always of high quality. That is why we requested and received licence for our education program activities from Croatian Education and Teacher Training Agency.
Part of children education activities is also School and Kindergarten Adoption. Apart from all items listed in the bulleted list above, this adoption also includes a CD-ROM with information on dolphins and whales of the Mediterranean and the Adriatic sea, with prepared lectures for teachers on ADP, dolphin biology, and human-dolphin interaction and A3 poster.
If you would like to adopt one of our dolphins with your children, you can do it on-line by following this link to School and Kindergarten Adoption. Should you prefer a form that you can fill, please take this .pdf Adoption form.
By choosing Family adoption, besides adoption pack you will also receive an attractive poster (100cm x 35cm) and a surprise. This is ideal pack to surprise your nearest and dearest.

Some companies have strong commitment to nature conservation. Depending on your motivation and options you can support Blue World Institute as a sponsor or donator. Furthermore, Blue World Institute have developed a partnership with a number of companies. Currently, our biggest project is development of the new Marine Science Centre. If you would like to maybe discuss some options of your long-term cooperation with us, please contact us. On the other hand, we do not make distinctions between sizes of your donations - each counts! So, if you would like to make dolphin adoption in the name of your company on-line, please follow this link to Company adoption. Should you prefer a form that you can fill, please take this .pdf Adoption form.
And some ideas to re-consider. Company adoptions can be a nice gift for your business partners. They show what you stand for and most certainly are not what everybody expects! Also, some of our company adopters have ordered special adoptions and have named their corporate office spaces, meeting rooms etc. according to the names of adopted dolphins. So, for us your interest is what counts!
Thank you again for supporting our work! We are sure that with YOUR help dolphins, whales, marine turtles, monk seal, sharks, giant devil rays and other marine creatures we encunter and try to protect will live in a safer environment!
