  I have finally found a present that I don’t need to reuse, reduce or recycle!  It’s the “in” thing to give as a Christmas present this year and….you can even be a last-minute kind of person who forgot to go shopping and get one on the 24th or 25th .  It’s adoption papers for a marine animal! The money goes toward research and education, and the care of the animals (depending on which organization you choose) and there are a huge variety to choose from.  Here are just a few that I’ve come across; you can also contact your local public aquarium, I’m sure they’ll be able to help you find your perfect match: seahorse_adoptionSEAHORSE http://www.mcsuk.org/support_mcs/Join+Donate+Adopt/Adopt-a-Seahorse SEA OTTER
