Adopt our Red-eared Slider, Ethel.

For $75, you can provide an animal with all the care they need for one year.

Why adopt an animal?

All animals at the Center receive:

  • Expert care from staff who oversee their daily needs
  • Special diets to meet their specific needs
  • Enrichment items to encourage natural behaviors
  • Regular veterinary check-ups to insure optimal health

What animals can I adopt?

Several animals are available for adoption. View a full list of adoptable animals and see which one you would like to adopt.

Your adoption includes:

  • a personalized adoption certificate
  • a beautiful color photo of your animal
  • a description of its natural and personal history
  • a recognition plaque in the exhibit gallery

Animal adoptions are valid for one year from the date of processing. Animals may have multiple “adoptive parents” and must remain under the care of the staff at the Center.

Adopting a wild resident of the Nahant Marsh Education Center is a great gift idea!

You can also support the animals by purchasing items on our Amazon Wishlist or by making a monetary donation amount of your choice.
