Wildlife Adoption Kits


One reader who has entered this blog’s contest for a WWF-Canada black-footed ferret adoption kit has asked if there are other kits available.   The answer is “yes”.

While the black-footed ferret is enjoying a success story, other wildlife species and habitats are being pushed towards extinction.  WWF-Canada and WWF-US manage a number of programs that address these threats, with matching symbolic wildlife adoption kits that help raise much needed funds to support these programs.

The adoption kits, as well as other items, can be viewed and purchased through WWF-Canada’s online store.  WWF-US’s adoption kits can be found at their online gift center.
