This holiday season, consider giving a gift that gives back. Oceana gives you the opportunity to adopt a creature. Your donation goes to help Oceana's work to protect these wonderful creatures and their habitats. This is a great gift, as it helps Oceana continue their important work and will surely delight the animal lover in your life. This is a gift I chose to share with my children, both of whom are very environmentally aware. They loved the fact that the gift was helping animals. And they really enjoyed making some shark sugar cookies as well.
