Moms around the world take remarkable steps to protect, nurture and raise their young. Orangutan mothers stay with their young for six to seven years, teaching them where to find food and how to build a sleeping nest. A group of female African elephants will help a calf to its feet after birth and show the baby how to nurse.
Here are two easy ways to thank the mothers in your life while supporting wildlife conservation:
- Give a Mother’s Day Gift for Wildlife: Show Mom that you care! Make a donation of any amount to support World Wildlife Fund’s global conservation efforts, and send an e-card to Mom to announce your gift. She will love knowing that your donation helps protect species and wild places around the world.
- Send Free WWF Mother’s Day E-cards: Tell your mother, grandmother, sister, or friend that you care about her and nature by sending Mother’s Day e-cards. They are a fun and eco-friendly way to express your love and appreciation for all that she does!
