Hippo Adoption

Adventure Aquarium and our Fins for the Future conservation program are pleased to announce ADOPT-A-HIPPO! Through this program, guests will learn about the Aquarium's two hippopotamuses, Button and Genny. Proceeds from the program will be used to support ongoing enrichment programs for these animals at Adventure Aquarium, and to help hippos worldwide through the Turgwe Hippo Trust.

Hippo Adoption - $50

At this level, guest will receive:

    • An official Certificate of Adoption for one of our two hippos
    • A bio/fact sheet with your hippo's name, date of birth, approximate weight, identifying behaviors, and additional interesting facts
    • A color photo of your new Hippo Pal
    • A Hippo painting - a reproduction of original artwork created by the fancy footwork of your hippo
    • A plush hippo
