WWF

Who: WWF

What: Symbolic species adoptions which come with an optional adoption pack. Choose from a dugong, manatee, walrus, seahorse, penguin, shark, turtle, whale, octopus and many more… Each pack includes:

  • 5″ x 7″ formal adoption certificate

  • Species spotlight card, full of fascinating information about the animal
  • Personalised acknowledgment letter to your gift recipient.

Why?: Dugongs live in tropical and subtropical coastal and island waters, spanning some 37 countries and territories. Listed as vulnerable to extinction on a global scale, the dugong is the only herbivorous mammal that is strictly marine. Feeding on sea grasses, dugongs are long-lived with a low reproductive rate and long gestation period. Under the most optimistic conditions, a dugong population is unlikely to increase at more than about five percent per year, making dugongs vulnerable to over-exploitation. Dugongs are at risk from habitat loss, disease, hunting and accidental drowning in fishing gear.

For almost 60 years, WWF has been protecting the future of nature. One of the world’s leading conservation organisations, WWF works in nearly 100 countries and is supported by more than 5 million people globally.
