WWF-Canada: Stuff a Stocking and Help Save a Species

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov. 19, 2007) -

Attn: Holiday Gift Guide Editors:

There are countless gift options available every holiday season, but few are as meaningful, or as memorable, as the ability to help protect one of the world's threatened species. This year, adopt an animal through WWF-Canada for a gift that will be remembered long after the holidays are over.

The WWF-Canada Adoption Program offers people the chance to purchase a symbolic adoption of a threatened species, so WWF-Canada can continue to conserve nature. New this year are ten different species to choose from; polar bear, Asian elephant, leatherback turtle, giant panda, Arctic fox, orangutan, tiger, owl, snow leopard and orca.

The adoption package contains an adorable 12.5 cm stuffed animal of your choice, a personalized adoption certificate, a letter identifying you as the gift giver, and a brochure detailing the work you will be supporting - all wrapped up in a great reusable WWF-Canada tote bag.

By adopting an animal you are helping WWF-Canada save wildlife, protect vital habitat and improve the health of our planet. To adopt an animal please call 1-800-26-PANDA or visit wwfstore.ca. Adoption kits cost only $40 and the purchaser will be issued a $30 tax receipt for each adoption.

WWF-Canada works to save nature by conserving species and protecting their habitats; by ensuring our use of natural resources is sustainable, and by helping individuals, companies and governments reduce pollution. For more information, visit wwf.ca.
