Adopt a Species to give the perfect gift to the conservationist in your life — even if the conservationist is you.
For nearly 40 years, Smithsonian scientists have pioneered efforts to study, understand and protect Asian elephants, both in the wild and in human care. They've made great strides, but Asian elephants are still endangered, so there is more work to be done. When you symbolically adopt an animal, you support Friends of the National Zoo in its efforts to help the Smithsonian's National Zoo and Conservation Biology Institute save species.
