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.
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:
