Adopt a Species

Help protect rare wildlife. Your symbolic adoption supports our efforts to protect New Jersey’s rarest animals, restore important habitat, and foster pride in New Jersey’s rich wildlife heritage. Adopting a Species also makes a great gift for a friend or loved one. Give the gift that gives twice!

New Jersey is a small state with very big natural resources. From the mountains of northwestern New Jersey to the Delaware Bayshore, our state provides habitat for a wonderful array of wildlife that exist in our cities, suburbs, fields, forests, beaches, and bays. Bald eagles soar above our marshes and reservoirs but can also be found along the hustle and bustle of our highway corridors. Peregrine falcons nest on the cliffs of the Palisades and in our biggest urban centers. Bog turtles find refuge in the grassy, wet meadows of Warren and Sussex County while Pine Barrens treefrogs can be heard calling from the Pinelands.

Yet habitat loss, pollution, climate change, and other threats create a perilous situation for our wildlife.We must act now to ensure the survival of our precious wildlife before it’s too late!
