Schools & Large Adoption Orders

Defenders of Wildlife is happy to provide schools, companies, nonprofits and other organizations discounts for large orders through our popular Wildlife Adoption & Gift Center.

For example, Defenders has partnered with student organizations, classrooms and schools who have offered adoptions to their fellow students, teachers, staff and friends. These partnerships have:

  • Delighted students and student organizations who have made a difference in saving wildlife and received recognition through articles and pictures in local and major market newspapers.
  • Educated students, parents, staff and friends about the human threats facing our endangered wildlife and the habitat it needs to survive.
  • Resulted in substantial discounts on adoption orders.
  • Generated caring donations to Defenders of Wildlife which have been immediately put to the best use to save our imperiled wild animals for future generations to enjoy.

If you are interested in making a large adoption order or partnering with us, please email us at: adoptionorders@defenders.org.

Thank you! We're excited to work with you to save our wild animals and wild lands!

  1. If you participate in the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC), donate by designating Defenders of Wildlife (our CFC number is 10624).

  2. Send a message to your elected representatives and other officials on important wildlife issues through Defenders’ Wildlife Action Center at www.defenders.org/take_action.

  3. Adopt an imperiled animal through our wildlife adoption program and pass along the conservation message to a friend or loved one. Or give a Wolf-Saving Gift or another gift through our Wildlife Adoption & Gift Center at www.wildlifeadoption.org.

  4. Refuse to purchase or support the importation of wild rainforest birds of any kind. The trade in such birds results in the destruction of fast-disappearing rainforest habitat. And the conditions in which these birds are shipped are terribly inhumane!

  5. Get the latest tips on how to make a difference for our wild animals and places through volunteering or making changes in your own life at www.defenders.org/take_action.

  6. Check with wildlife authorities before clearing or filling in land or redirecting small streams. You could be disturbing wildlife that lives in these areas.

  7. Help us stop the barbaric aerial gunning of wolves in Alaska and prevent the slaughter of wolves in the Greater Yellowstone National Park region at www.savewolves.org.

  8. Join local groups in their efforts to clean up rivers and creeks.

  9. Avoid using open flames outdoors, unless strictly supervised. It takes just one spark to destroy areas of fields and forests.

  10. Leave a bequest for wildlife by naming Defenders of Wildlife in your will, trust, retirement plan, or insurance policy. Go to http://defenders.planyourlegacy.org/ for helpful information.
