The holiday season is approaching, and boy are we ready for it this year! It’s time to show our friends and family how much we treasure them – what better way than with gifts that will delight while saving wildlife?
Wildlife Conservation Network is proud to partner with companies that are committed to having a positive impact by donating a portion of proceeds to wildlife conservation. We are also delighted to showcase items from rural communities around the world who create products that support conservation and promote sustainable local incomes.

“Felti” Animal Ornaments, Spectacled Bear Conservation
One of the cutest holiday gifts you can buy are woolen animal “feltis,” handcrafted by Spectacled Bear Conservation. These ornaments sell out every year at our Wildlife Conservation Expo – our personal favorite is the owl! SBC works with remote communities in northwestern Peru to train local women as Felti artisans, and the vital income helps them provide for their families. In return, these communities enthusiastically support conservation and the efforts of SBC to protect the spectacled bear and its fragile habitat. Shop here, starting at $12.
Adopt a Macaw, Macaw Recovery Network
Know any bird lovers? Now you can symbolically adopt a scarlet macaw or great green macaw through the Macaw Recovery Network – an adoption that will enable that bird to be released into the wild one day. Adopting a macaw will help MRN protect these endangered birds and their habitats while rescuing macaws. You will receive a digital welcome package and receive quarterly updates about the macaw that you take under your wing, a perfect gift for anyone enamored by these magnificent birds. You can also adopt an almond tree, the home of a macaw! Adopt here, starting at $50.

We love the holiday season because it’s a time when we can show some love to our friends, family, and the planet as well.
