Have you started perusing for the perfect Christmas present? Look no further! Delight your loved one, friend or colleague with an adopted Little Penguin, Koala, Australian Fur Seal, Eastern Barred Bandicoot, Short-tailed Shearwater or Hooded Plover. Our animal adoptions raise vital funds to support Phillip Island's (Millowl) natural environment and native wildlife and include a digital adoption certificate and adopted animal factsheet.
You can share this unique gift with your family, a friend or even yourself! Your single, monthly or yearly donation will help to protect the species and their habitats today and for years to come.
The digital adoption welcome, certificate/photo and factsheet are sent to the email address you nominate in our donation online form. They are automatically sent within one email after your donation has been processed, which in most cases is immediately.
Sometimes, certain email clients can file our emails in folders other than Inbox – including Promotions, Other, Spam or Junk folders. This seems to happen more often with Gmail and Outlook accounts. Please have a look to ensure that your adoption welcome pack isn’t hiding in one of these folders.
If you have done so and it is still missing, please let us know via the contact us form and we will prepare a new certificate and factsheet and email it to you directly.
Our team will be taking a break from 23 December - 16 January 2023. We look forward to speaking with you and sharing updates with you after this date.
Please note: Gift adoptions are emailed immediately to the recipient. If you would prefer to keep it a surprise and to print and wrap the adoption certificate for Christmas Day, please enter your email address, include your gift recipient’s name instead of your own and do not tick the 'gift adoption' option. Add in the name you wish to give to the adopted animal to be included on the certificate. Thanks for supporting The Penguin Foundation.
