Animal-friendly Christmas Suggestions Part 2

Ho ho ho! Welcome to the second part of our Christmas suggestions that will not only fill your Santas stockings with creative ideas but they're also ones that will help out our environment. 

In today's post, we've got suggestions from the Born Free Foundation and the Lilongwe Wildlife Centre. Read on for more details :


A Christmas gift that REALLY makes a difference!

Give your friends and family a 'Gift in Kind' and help transform the lives of animals in need. Help an animal in need for as little as £5.

It’s simple:
1. Choose your 'Gift in Kind'
2. Receive a gift card to give to family and friends to keep
3. Your gift helps a real animal!

We love this idea! Check it out…

ROUND OF DRINKS - But the drinks aren't for you, they're for baby animals drinking milk - cheers!
Price: £5.00

MEAL FOR TWO - But the meal isn't for you,
it's for Dolo and Safia the lions!
Price: £5.00

RETIRE IN STYLE - But it's not you who's retiring, it's a lioness who's said goodbye to the circus!
Price: £10.00

YOUR OWN PIECE OF PARADISE - But this paradise isn't for you, it's for a marine turtle!
Price: £15.00

WINNER – 2011 International Responsible Tourism Award - ´Best for Conservation of Wildlife and Habitats´

As a grass roots charity working with wildlife and communities every day, Lilongwe Wildlife Centre has an enormous number of projects that are making a positive difference to the wildlife in Malawi. They have great infrastructure and expertise but really need funds!

Recently they have had a massive influx of orphaned primates, including a 6 week old female Baboon that was confiscated from a road seller and a 3 week old male Baboon, which was offered to a tourist who managed to persuade the seller to hand it over to the Centre. Babies this age need 24hour round the clock surrogate care. Exhausting!

Depending on your Xmas budget there are tonnes of projects that you can sponsor at Lilongwe. A big thank you and full recognition will go to your loved one as the recipient-gift giver.

If you would like to find out more or to arrange your gift, please contact Kate – marketing@llwc.org

Tune in next time for more suggestions! Have a lovely weekend! From Oceans2Earth
