KANYANA Wildlife is asking animal lovers to consider a less traditional gift idea this Christmas.

The Lesmurdie not-for-profit organisation hopes to generate income through an animal adoption scheme.

Education officer Cass Rowles said family gift vouchers for nocturnal tours and meet and greet experiences at the centre also made popular presents.

“When you adopt an animal through Kanyana, you receive a personalised certificate of adoption, a fact sheet, our newsletter and the knowledge that your contribution goes towards saving wildlife,” Ms Rowles said.

“There are more than 15 different animals available to adopt, so everyone can get something different.”

Adoption certificates start from $20 and tour gift vouchers from $40.

Last Christmas orders will be posted on Friday, December 18, and can be sent directly to the gift recipient.
