When you redeem your points for this gift, TerraCycle will send funds to National Wildlife Federation to protect 36 square feet of wildlife land critical to the safety of bison, grizzly bears, gray wolves and other wildlife. Through National Wildlife Federation’s Adopt-a-Wildlife-Acre program, you’ll help protect the wild animals that are at risk of death when they roam beyond the protected borders of Yellowstone National Park.
Your donation to the Adopt-a-Wildlife-Acre program will help resolve this chronic conflict between ranchers and wildlife. NWF compensates ranchers for retiring their grazing allotments in and around national parks, thereby allowing ranchers to relocate their livestock to new conflict-free locations. Ranchers are happy, their livestock can thrive and wildlife survives.
It will take 2,500 TerraCycle points to protect one acre of wildlife land through the Adopt-a-Wildlife Acre Program. As there are 43,560 square feet to an acre, for every 2 points you redeem, you can protect 36 square feet. TerraCycle will aggregate your points with those from any of the other 60,000 collection locations across the US that also redeem points for this program. 1,250 collection locations redeem points to protect wildlife lands, TerraCycle will arrange for the protection of an acre through National Wildlife Federation. Of course, if you want to protect 3,600 square feet for 200 points, just change the quantity in the shopping card and the additional square feet and redeemed points will be presented in your shopping cart.
To date, National Wildlife Federation has retired over 600,000 acres of land in the Yellowstone region, thereby giving wildlife the room they need to roam.
The National Wildlife Federation is America's largest conservation organization. They work with more than 4 million members, partners and supporters in communities across the country to protect and restore wildlife habitat, confront global warming and connect with nature.
