Adopt-A-Turtle as a Holiday Gift!

GAINESVILLE, FL – Sea turtle adoptions make a great, green holiday gift idea for the people in your life that want to make a positive impact on the natural world. Your gift of a symbolic sea turtle adoption helps Sea Turtle Conservancy protect more sea turtles, while making holiday shopping easier and more meaningful.

For a tax-deductible donation of $30 or more, Sea Turtle Conservancy will send gift recipients a personalized adoption certificate, a Sea Turtle Conservation Guide, a membership window cling, a sea turtle sticker and bookmark, a magnet, and a one-year subscription to Sea Turtle Conservancy's membership publication, all in a keepsake sea turtle folder.

“Sea turtle adoptions are a fun way to spread the message of conservation during the holidays,” said David Godfrey, Executive Director of Sea Turtle Conservancy. “These symbolic adoptions also make a big impact, supporting sea turtle conservation efforts worldwide.”

Why sea turtles? These ancient creatures are among the most important indicators of the health of the world's marine and coastal ecosystems. All seven sea turtle species are listed as threatened or endangered, and their continuing decline has serious implications for countless marine animals as well as for people.

For a limited time, upgrade any sea turtle adoption to the $50 level or above, and STC will include a free 2013 Sea Turtle Scenes Calendar in addition to the adoption premium.

Order by Friday, December 7th for free, guaranteed delivery by Christmas. To adopt a turtle online, visit AdoptASeaTurtle.org or call 1-800-678-7853 to place a phone order
