Wildlife Adoption Program

You probably have a favorite animal that you get excited about seeing when you’re visiting a state park, so why not adopt it and become a Wildlife Champion? Your adoption is a tax-deductible gift that helps with wildlife habitat restoration, protection, and education. Adoption packages make great gifts for holidays, birthdays, or any special occasion!

This is more than just symbolic because your adoption makes a real difference to the wildlife in Florida’s state parks. Florida’s natural lands are threatened by development pressures, invasive species, altered natural processes, and habitat loss.  The Florida State Parks Foundation is working hard to preserve them, and that includes the wildlife who depend on these lands for their survival.

The Wildlife Adoption program is perfect for school classes, scout troops, and other groups. Any class or scout troop can have a guinea pig, but what about a Florida Black Bear?  It’s easy with a Wildlife Adoption.  When your class or scout troop adopts a black bear, you are helping to maintain and preserve its natural habitat.  If a big bear seems like too much to handle, there are plenty of other animals to choose from.  

Funds from the Wildlife Adoption program go toward efforts to assist wildlife habitat restoration and protection, wildlife care, and education in Florida’s state parks.

Most adoption packages are digital and emailed to the designated Wildlife Champion.  Digital delivery reduces paper use, minimizes our carbon paw print, and maximizes your donation for supporting wildlife-related projects in Florida’s state parks. Digital and mailed adoption packages are typically processed within three weeks. If you need your adoption package in a hurry, please email info@floridastateparksfoundation.org.
