Adopt a Penguin

Adopt a Penguin

Adopt a penguin through the Galapagos Conservation Trust and help out these waddling wonders! Officially classed as ‘being an endemic species under threat’ the cute as a button black and white Galapagos Penguin needs you.

This special penguin adoption gift pack means you will be helping the loveable penguin residents of the Galapagos Islands. To thank you for your adoption support you will receive a lovely pack filled with facts and figures about the specific geology and fascinating oceanography of the Galapagos with photos and maps included. 

Once you register your adoption pack online you’ll receive an official certificate to say you have taken a penguin under your wing. And that means you are helping to safeguard this vulnerable and rare species. Galapagos Penguins are in fact the only penguins that live north of the Equator (we’re not including ones in sea life centres and zoos!).

And the reasons why the Galapagos Penguins are at risk are multiple. They are indigenous only to the Galapagos as is the case for several species of birds and animals. That’s all thanks to the isolation and unique geology of this volcanic archipelago. That in turn means that numbers in the world are small.

Then there are the ‘manmade’ risks to the humble Galapagos Penguin. They’re one of the smallest penguins that exist so they often get caught up in fishing nets. And illegal fishing can even disturb their breeding and nesting habits too. Oh and not to mention the fact that being so tiny means they’re prey for many. From their ocean-mates the sharks and the sea lions to hawks and snakes everyone seems to think the Galpagos Penguin makes for a tasty snack!

With all that going on in their lives that’s why we’re pleased to offer this penguin adoption gift box for you. The very important work of the Galapagos Conservation Trust as the only UK charity focussing exclusively on the conservation and sustainability of the Galapagos Islands and it’s remarkable ecosystem will be supported by you buying this adoption gift for Penguin lovers.

So don’t leave them out in the cold adopt a penguin today! This is another great opportunity to help the endangered animals of our planet and all of IntotheBlue’s Animal Experiences gift boxes help support feed and protect animals we all love. These very special animal gift tins are sure to bring a smile to the recipient.

Adopt a Donkey

Adopt a Donkey

Adopt a donkey at this sanctuary in Oxfordshire and you will be helping a little donkey to lead a better life in the loving arms of this rescue centre run by a very dedicated team of animal lovers.

All the donkeys staying at the sanctuary are up for adoption and they are there because they have been abused or ill-treated in the past. This registered charity works hard to save them and take them away from a life of being mistreated and neglected. Life at this working farm means the donkeys spend the rest of their days safe happy and loved – and your adoption ensures the continuing welfare of the donkeys and will help keep the centre running.

The centre is home to lots of different donkeys that are ready to be adopted including geldings and mares some of whom were born to rescued donkeys at the centre. They’ve all got such distinct characters too with Charlie the cheeky gelding rescued from Wales who loves pulling a small plough and hanging out with his stable mate Jack. There’s the very photogenic Chocolate who has starred in TV shows and loves nothing more than to attend country fairs to help promote adopting donkeys. Then there’s Mr Crusty who was rescued from a pony sale and loves a good dose of fuss and attention. And how could we forget Loppy with his big ears a rare Andalusian donkey whose adoption story has featured in the news.

Unfortunately the one thing that they all have in common is that they were badly treated at some point in their lives. There are no sad stories now though as that’s all in the past and these donkeys are happy and secure in their adoptive home on the farm. They even get to give special needs children rides – which makes everyone happy.

Once you’ve received your adopt a donkey pack all you have to do is choose the specific donkey you’d like to support and register your adoption. Then wait eagerly for the photograph and a certificate of adoption to arrive. You can also visit the donkey you have adopted at the sanctuary in Oxfordshire during normal opening hours so you can meet your adoptive donkey face to face and maybe share a carrot or two.

Help a donkey have a better more cared for life by buying one of our selection of Adopt an Animal gift tins a perfect gift idea for animal lovers everywhere.

Adopt an Elephant

Adopt an Elephant

Help these giants of the jungle when you adopt an elephant in association with the People’s Trust for Endangered Species. By joining in with these elephant adoption scheme you’ll be helping to support the important work being carried out in India to help protect the resident Asian Elephants.

We’ve long been aware that the majestic Elephas Maximus is endangered. Over the years lots of important conservation work has been carried out in areas that are home to both African and Asian Elephants changing attitudes on ivory hunting and the destruction of natural habitats. In the case of the Asian Elephants you’ll be supporting population numbers have gone up. That in itself is great news but the work doesn’t end there…

The original reserve areas secured for elephants are now often too small for the number of resident elephants. This puts them in conflict with the local communities who naturally want to protect their agriculture. The PTES’s emergency work at the Mayurjharna Elephant Reserve in India for example revolves around mapping routes that the elephants use for migration. That means the seasonal movements of these magnificent mammals can be charted enabling the PTES researchers to work with communities to advise on where and when to plant crops.

By buying an elephant adoption pack you will be financially aiding this important work on the ground that will enable the elephant population and the human population to live in harmony securing everyone’s well-being and future. 

And your elephant adoption pack will be a constant reminder of this. In it there’s a whole host of goodies related to all things elephant. One of the biggest questions is neatly answered with a poster detailing the differences between African and Asian Elephants. (In case you were wondering apart from living on different continents. it’s all to do with the size of their ears!). Then there are loads of facts and figures about elephants for your to pour over. And once you’ve completed and sent off your elephant adoption registration form you’ll received your personalised certificate.

It takes a huge amount of human effort and cost to aid and protect elephants so by purchasing an adopt and elephant tin from IntotheBlue not only will you be making someone who loves these creatures very happy you’ll also be making an elephantine contribution to the conservation scheme and research project in Asia – and we’re sure that’s something these elephants will never forget!
