WWF Wildlife Adoption Kit Giveawayby
Leading up to the holiday season I love profiling unique gift options for friends and loved ones – the intangible gifts and experiences that make a difference. WWF Canada has launched their Wildlife Adoption Kits for the season, symbolic gifts to share and support a wildlife cause in various regions around the globe.
When you symbolically adopt a species at risk, you’re giving an extraordinary gift while supporting WWF’s conservation efforts. Help make a difference around the world. Give the gift that keeps on giving. In addition to feeling good about your gift, you will also receive an applicable tax receipt.
Species up for “adoption” include everything from orangutans, meerkats, and blue sharks to the snowy owl, leopard frog, and grizzly bear. New species this year include the river otter, orca, gorilla, and Kermode bear.
Each kit is $40 and comes with a personalized adoption certificate, high-quality wildlife plush and collector card, a recycled gift bag, and details on the work this gift will help support the species. A $30 tax receipt is also issued with purchase.
To promote the WWF Wildlife Adoption Kits, I have a Kermode Bear kit to give away to one lucky reader.
The rare Kermode bear is a subspecies of the American black bear. One out of every ten has a unique cream-coloured coat. The white bears are also known as Spirit Bears. Habitat destruction is the biggest threat faced by the Kermode bear.
Kermode have been designated the official animal of British Columbia. Here’s how you can enter to win the Kermode Bear kit:

I will draw one winner at random from all entries at 12:00pm on Tuesday, November 13, 2012. Follow WWF Canada Twitter and Facebook for more information about their efforts around the world.
Update The winner is Anne!

I’ve asked for one of these every year for Christmas!
Conservation has never been more important! I’d love to win this for my nieces

It would be a nice gift for a child – to raise their awareness

This is a truly lovely giveaway
This is a great cause and will give you a wonderful feeling to support it!
What a great idea! And the bear is so darn cute!
So happy that they’ve created this kit. What a beautiful animal.
I heard about the spirit bear on TED. Great talk, great prize!
I had no idea that the bear was BC’s designated animal. Nor did I know that the WWF had adoption kits!
The spirit bear is very cool.. and we live in Kamloops, and just got a Kermode in our local wildlife park (Clover!) My son is dying to meet him but we have to wait unitl spring!
Very cute prize pack!

Kermode is Cool
OMG this contest is a sign! My 11 year old daughter has been talking my ear off about this for weeks. I promised her I would look into it and she has been getting books out of the library on Spirit bears ever since. This is the perfect prize!
This is on the Christmas list this year!
what a cool giveaway, thanks for the chance.
I would love to win this for my niece — she would love it!
What a wonderful idea, I’d love to win this to give away at my office party
Ahhhhh so cute. Would love to give this as a christmas gift.
Amazing gift idea for the holidays! As a society we definitely don’t need any more “things”, and this is such a wonderful way to give back.
The Kermode bear is rare and precious and one of the main reasons why an oil pipeline must never go through the Great Bear Rainforest!
I am very much against the pipeline project it’s a waste of money and it can possibly endanger the rare species of bear. Which in my opinion, should stop the project right there. But not to big corporate companies who are as heartless as villians in movies and video games. I would much rather keep the natural wonders of the Canadian rainforest which is home to this rare bear!!
Cute Bear, I would love winning this!!Either for myself or for a relative. Great idea!!
I would LOVE this little guy! The Great Bear is such an important project and the Spirit bear is part of that. I need this little dude in my life he is so cute. PLEASE pick me!!!
This would make a fantastic and thoughtful gift!
I love WWF adoption kits. They’re a great way to share nature education/awareness with children.
I’d love to win these for my nieces too.
Great giveaway idea – a fantastic cause… love the WWF 🙂
Love these animal kits! Such a good cause!
This particular species is rare.. and I still dont think poachers should get away with stealing the native’s animals and selling them to the black market. It makes me so mad when people used to stop by and ask if they could shoot our black bears or deer.. I sure warded that man off! hehe
I love the adoptions…. started giving them to my nieces and nephew for birthdays. They love getting “stuffed animals that help protect real animals”. Great giveaway!
This is a great new edition to your series of adoption kits! Especially in the light of the Northern Gateway Pipleline issue and the dangers of it to species like the Kermode Bear.
Kermode bears are so cool! And I love giveaways 🙂 Thanks!
I love the Spirit Bear. I would give this to my nephews!

I have received an adopted polar bear and at least two baby elephants whose mother has been poached.. a great gift and I also got a sea creature but cannot think of its name !
I love receiving and giving gifts of nature
Great gift idea! And the bear is so cute!
Would make a great gift.
What a beautiful idea. I can’t think of a more meaningful gift, and what a great way to teach our children about what’s really important at Christmas!
When I was a child I wanted to live with the apes. Now as an adult I’ll settle for adopting one from here!
