A wonderful way to help educate others about wildlife, and save species that face extinction.
Washington, DC (PRWEB) November 21, 2005
Leading wildlife conservation organization Defenders of Wildlife (http://www.defenders.org) offers a unique opportunity to help endangered species and other wildlife emergencies, by giving a wildlife adoption holiday gift for that special someone through the Wildlife Adoption Center (http://www.wildlifeadoption.org).
Through a tax deductible contribution, wildlife adoptions of individual endangered species and other threatened animals such as: wolf, tiger, sea otter, polar bear, dolphin, snowy owl (for those Harry Potter fans), panther, elephant, whale, cottontail rabbit, jaguar or black bear are available. There are also opportunities to adopt a wolf family, a big cats group, a marine mammal group, an arctic refuge wildlife group, or a polar bear mom and cub.
Gift recipients are sent a certificate of adoption and a plush animal of the adopted species. Both are shipped free in time for the holidays with an e-card announcement.
Vice President for Membership Steve DelVecchio calls the program, now in its fifth year, “A wonderful way to help educate others about wildlife, and save species that face extinction.”
Defenders of Wildlife uses the contributions from the wildlife adoptions to meet a number of wildlife emergencies including the aerial gunning of wolves, the poaching of tigers for their skins, and the potential threats posed by oil drilling to sea otters and polar bear populations.
For adoption orders received by Nov. 30, Defenders of Wildlife is offering a holiday discount of 10 percent (use discount code PRW10 when ordering), or call toll free 1-800 385-9712 and phone operators will take your adoption order.
Since 1947, Defenders of Wildlife has worked to save wildlife and its habitat for future generations. Reader’s Digest named Defenders “America’s Best Wildlife Charity.” By supporting Defenders of Wildlife, you will help wildlife conservation by helping to preserve some of America’s most prized and endangered species, while giving the gift of education and stewardship (http://www.wildlifeadoption.org).
