SPONSOR "THE KIDS" AT AQUAWORLD

Many kind visitors have expressed a wish to help us and our animals
- especially during these difficult times -
 by sponsoring their favourites...

Simply choose the animal(s) you would like to sponsor and for how long.
Then click on the PayPal "Donate" button to pay safely and securely online with your credit/debit card.
If you'd prefer not to donate online, please see below for how to pay at your local bank.

In return, we will email you a special certificate which you can print off for display or to send as a gift.
(Please be sure to tell us the correct name to put on the certificate.)

Whatever method you choose, you can be sure that 100% of the money received
here at Aquaworld will go to ensure the well-being of our animals.

We have tried to accommodate everyone by offering sponsorship of a variety of our "kids",
but please email us if you'd like to do something we haven't thought of!

 
 


NAGA & RAJA - The magnificent pythons

Naga & Raja

Naga and Raja both arrived at Aquaworld as unwanted pets.

In fact, Naga's previous owner had to find her a home - or his wife was going to take their baby, leave him and go live with her mother! we like to think we saved both their marriage and the snake!

 BLONDIE - The Giant Tortoise

Blondie the giant tortoise

Blondie has lived at Aquaworld for some years now and is a great favourite with many people who simply cannot believe how young he is.

Sponsoring Blondie will also assist us in caring for all our other tortoises.

GARFIELD - The Alligator Gar

Garfield the alligator gar

Garfield was our first ever "fish rescue" in the summer of 2009. If we are to believe all that we read, he will possibly reach 3 metres in length and over 150 kilos in weight. He will definitely need a larger aquarium in time...

Sponsor Garfield to help us achieve this and to care for all the sea life at Aquaworld.

MR. PRICKLES - The "Boss" Iguana

Mister Prickles the "Boss" iguana

Mr. Prickles was the first of the green iguanas to arrive at Aquaworld in 2001. The others have all been sent to us as unwanted pets - they just grew too big for their previous owners.

By sponsoring Mr. Prickles, you are helping us to help discarded reptiles.

SABINA - The "Secret Boss" Iguana

Sabina - the 'secret' boss

Mr Prickles might think that he's the boss...

But Sabina - although much smaller - keeps him and Mookie, the other alpha male, firmly in their places!

Just shows that testosterone on its own just ain't enough...

STEPHANIA - The Blind Sea Turtle

Stephania the blind green turtle

Sadly, Stephania was deliberately blinded by people some 10 years ago. She has been cared for at Aquaworld since June, 2000.

On the positive side, she has won the hearts and souls of countless visitors and really acts the part as an ambassador for her kind.

STELIOS - The "Smart" Octopus

Olivia the octopus

The octopus was the original inspiration for Aquaworld as long ago as 1991. One of the smartest creatures in the sea, Stelios and his counterparts amaze and delight with their intelligent responses to problem solving!

Aquaworld only keeps octopuses for a few months in order that they can be returned to their natural element to continue their all too short lives.
