WWF-Philippines Let's You 'Adopt' a Dolphin or Panda for Only P3,000
Yes, you read it right! The World Wide Fund for Nature Philippines (WWF-Philippines) has recently launched an adoption program for dolphins and pandas. Unfortunately, you don't get to take a panda or dolphin home with you.
Aside from helping the animals, WWF will be sending you a limited edition panda stuffed toy or dolphin stuffed toy, depending on which of them you adopted. The donor's kit also comes with an adoption certificate and a species information card.
The first 500 donors will have their donation kit shipped to them for free, courtesy of 2GO. Please visit the WWF-Philippines Facebook Page or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on how to donate.
WWF-Philippines Takes Stand Against Dolphin Captivity for Entertainment Purposes
Recently, WWF-Philippines has reiterated its stand against the holding of dolphins in captivity for entertainment purposes. They see this as exploitation of one of the most intelligent mammal species in the world.
The organization supports the campaign of the Animal Concerns Research and Evaluation Society (ACRES) and the Earth Island Institute to free the 25 dolphins being held in captivity in the Philippines. These dolphins are currently being trained for use in a famous entertainment park (Resorts World Sentosa) in Singapore. Two of these dolphins have already died.
