What You'll Get
Animal adoption programs allow zoos to support their charges without renting out ostrich rides or charging extra to see the black bears prepare taxes. Protect captive creatures with today’s Groupon: for $50, you get an Adopt-a-Penguin sponsorship package from the Turtle Back Zoo in West Orange, supported by the Zoological Society of New Jersey (a $100 value). The package includes:
- A framable adoption certificate
- A fact sheet
- A photograph of the sponsored animal
- A bumper sticker
- Your name displayed on the Adopt-an-Animal Honor Roll Board located near the zoo entrance<p>
The beastmasters of Turtle Back Zoo fill the troughs of their squawking menagerie with the help of donations through the Adopt-an-Animal program. A framable adoption certificate commemorates the adoption of Turtle Back Zoo’s endangered African penguins⎯the noble butlers of the Southern Hemisphere⎯and the donation funds fish reserves, maintenance, and medical needs. Bird-benefactors also receive a photograph of the newest, most feathered member of their family and a bumper sticker with which to emblazon vehicles with a message championing the plight of penguin expatriates. Lodged near the entrance to the zoo, the Adopt-an-Animal Honor Roll Board proclaims the names of trans-species foster parents to visitors and those studious penguins who have learned to read.
