Symbolic Adoption Kits

Symbolically adopting a desert tortoise is a great way to support the DTPC’s efforts to conserve the species! We have redesigned our symbolic adoption kits to include various levels of giving. All symbolic adoption kits include an annual subscription to our newsletter Tortoise Tracks, a 5 x 7 photograph of a desert tortoise, personalized certificate, and informational materials. Each level of giving allows you to then include a plush tortoise, t-shirt (adult or youth), or both with your kit! For those wanting to include more than one person in their symbolic adoption, check out the new family option! T-shirt design and styles being featured in adoption kits will vary with availability. The design currently available with kits is included in the description of the kit and in the image of the contents of the kit.

If you are purchasing a kit as a gift, please let us know what name you’d like to include on the certificate!
