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:

  • Leave a comment on this post (1 entry)
  • Post the following on Twitter (1 entry)
RT to enter to win a #KermodeBear Wildlife Adoption Kit from @WWFCanada & @Miss604

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!

  46. Kyrie says:

    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.

  47. Bob Loveless says:

    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!

  48. Kaitlyn says:

    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!!

  49. Ashlee says:

    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!!!

  50. Jenn K says:

    Great gift!

  55. m peters says:

    Love these animal kits! Such a good cause!

  56. Samantha says:

    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

  57. Kim Rideout says:

    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!
