Yes, it’s true. You, too, can be the proud owner of a great white shark for the very reasonable price of $30.
Before you scoff, know that the great white shark adoption program is brought to you by the National Wildlife Federation, and the donation goes toward helping to protect America’s imperiled wildlife.
For $30, the National Wildlife Federation will send you a great white shark in the form of a 9-inch plush animal, a certificate of adoption and an 11x14-inch, full-color poster.
Don’t really care much for great white sharks? Then adopt something else. The National Wildlife Federation has plenty of animals to choose from at its Adoption Center.
Among them are an alligator, barking tree frog, barn owl, bald eagle, bison, bighorn sheep, jaguar, cheetah, caribou, Canada Lynx, grizzly bear, harp seal, lion, orca whale, sea turtle and even a baby chimpanzee.
And in case you’ve never heard of the National Wildlife Federation, here is a blurb about the organization:
National Wildlife Federation's mission is to inspire Americans to protect wildlife for our children's future. National Wildlife Federation (NWF) works with over 4 million members, partners, and supporters to actively educate, inspire, and promote achievable solutions to everyday Americans in communities from coast-to-coast.
Our conservation work focuses on three major areas that will have the biggest impact on the future of America's wildlife:
1. Confront global warming, the single most urgent threat to wildlife.
2. Protect and restore wildlife habitat, to ensure a wildlife legacy for our children.
3. Connect with nature by fostering profound and personal connections between people and nature.
Now, go adopt a great white shark.
