America’s Best Wildlife Charity.
Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) January 10, 2006
Leading wildlife conservation organization Defenders of Wildlife (http://www.defenders.org) is offering a unique Valentine's Day opportunity to give a wildlife animal adoption gift for that special someone through its Wildlife Adoption Center (http://www.wildlifeadoption.org). The wildlife animal adoption helps save endangered species and meets other wildlife emergencies.
Through a tax deductible contribution, wildlife adoptions of individual endangered species and other threatened animals such as: wolf, tiger, jaguar, polar bear, dolphin, panther, elephant, whale, cottontail rabbit or black bear are available. There are also opportunities to adopt 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 with an e-card announcement.
Vice President for Membership Steve DelVecchio calls the program, now in its fifth year, “A wonderful way to educate others about wildlife, and save species on the brink of extinction.”
Defenders of Wildlife use the contributions from the wildlife animal adoptions to meet a number of wildlife emergencies including the aerial gunning of wolves in Alaska; the poaching of tigers for their skins; and the potential threats posed by oil drilling to polar bears in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.
For adoption orders received by February 14, Defenders of Wildlife is offering a Valentine's Day discount of 10 percent (use discount code VDB10 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 preserving some of America’s most cherished and endangered species, while giving the gift of education and stewardship (http://www.wildlifeadoption.org).
