Remember this post from last year? You can “adopt” a walrus from the WWF. For a small donation you get a really nice stuffed walrus, a certificate and the satisfaction of knowing you’re helping the World Widlife Fund in their efforts to preserve endagered and threatened species like (unfortunately) the Walrus.
The World Wildlife Fund has what I think will be the perfect Christmas present for me this year. It’s the Walrus Adoption Kit!
Drifting slowly on ice floes through the Arctic waters of Canada, Alaska, northeast Russia, and Greenland, the walrus is easily recognized by its massive size and impressive tusks. With Arctic ice melting due to warmer temperatures, the walrus is losing its primary habitat for resting, birthing, nursing calves, and protecting itself from predators.
Each symbolic adoption kit includes a:
- high-quality wildlife plush.
- reusable gift bag, made from recycled plastic.
- personalized adoption certificate.
- letter that identifies you as the gift-giver.
- details on the work that your gift will help support.
There are 3 levels, $100, $50 and $25. Not all of the amount is deductible since you get the cute stuffed walrus, but helping the walrus is not about the tax deductions. This time is definitely making it onto the list of great walrus-related Christmas gifts, which is a future post I’m putting the finishing touches on for the near future. Until then, go buy one for the walrus-lover on your Christmas or Holiday list.
