Washington, DC (PRWEB) October 12, 2004
Leading wildlife conservation organization Defenders of Wildlife announces the opportunity to make holiday gifts of wildlife adoption through their Wildlife Adoption Center. Defenders of Wildlife is pleased to offer the sponsorship of certain imperiled species to caring citizens. Their help goes to support effective programs while also providing them with holiday gifts to present to their friends or loved ones. Vice President for Membership Steve DelVecchio calls the program, Âa wonderful way to help save wildlife and habitat for future generations.Â
All species supported by the Wildlife Adoption Center are being threatened in their natural habitat. The Wildlife Adoption Center offers holiday shoppers the choice of several different imperiled species to support, including wolves, tigers, polar and black bears, elephants, whales, sea otters, panthers, dolphins and snowy owls. Adopters receive a frameable Certificate of Adoption and corresponding plush toy, in addition to an e-card or printed card announcing the holiday gift.
Defenders of Wildlife is committed to promoting support for the preservation of at-risk wildlife and threatened habitat. As a non-profit organization, Defenders of Wildlife uses 89 percent of its revenues for program and support services, with the remaining 11 percent used for fundraising. Defenders of Wildlife was named by Worth magazine as one of the nationÂs top charities. They offer several informational publications including DENlines, a biweekly e-newsletter, and the award-winning Defenders magazine.
By supporting Defenders of Wildlife, you will help to preserve some of AmericaÂs most prized and endangered wildlife, while giving the gift of education and stewardship.
