Adopt a coral reef for Mother's Day
The Nature Conservancy is a US charitable environmental organization that works to preserve the plants, animals, and natural communities that represent the diversity of life on Earth by protecting the lands and waters they need to survive.
This Mother's Day, they are asking people to adopt a coral reef as a gift to their mothers. Coral reefs are home to some of the greatest biodiversity of life on the planet; Science is continually discovering chemicals found only in coral reefs that hold promising medical potential - medicines that can someday save mothers from diseases such as breast cancer, leukemia, lymphoma, asthma, and arthritis.
The Nature Conservancy is currently offering Adopt A Coral Reef in the Bahamas or Palau. Your adoption will fund preservation and restoration projects at these coral reefs. You can adopt an acre for $50, or half an acre for $25.
