The world is filled with an amazing diversity of wildlife. Some species are beautiful, others bizarre, and some are scary — but they all are important and deserve our protection. Unfortunately, many species are declining at a rapid pace due to human activity. Habitat destruction, climate change, pollution and illegal hunting are just some of the many threats to our fellow creatures. It's up to us to protect them and ensure that future generations will enjoy a world teeming with wildlife. National Wildlife Federation's Wildlife Adoption program lets you symbolically adopt your favorite species and at the same time support our important work protecting wildlife and connecting people to nature.
