Adopt an Oyster, Restore our Coast!

Give oysters a bright future in our coastal waters!

North Carolina’s native oyster, Crassostrea virginica, needs your help! For the cost of a few bottles of cocktail sauce, you can adopt a single oyster or a whole bushel. Your donation will provide the home that baby oysters need to survive. In three years, your oyster will be all grown up, filtering 50 gallons of water a day and providing a home for shrimp, crabs, and fish.

Your adoption comes with short, quirky updates about your oyster as well as a variety of benefits at different adoption levels. You can also adopt an oyster in honor of a friend!
