Adopt a Sea Turtle
You may select your sea turtle (photos available), gender and even Country. Visit their adoption page here.
Adopt a Coral
Adopt a Coral is a volunteer based Coral Reef Restoration Program in the Florida Keys.
Each adopter will receive a personalized certificate of adoption and photograph of a specific coral. Photos and measurement updates will be emailed at least twice during the adoption year. The adopter may assign a personal on-line name to the adopted coral and will have access to a set of sharable links for inviting friends and family to watch the coral grow.
You can even receive the GPS coordinates of your coral, so you could take a little snorkel or scuba va-cay to visit your adopted coral.
I think this is a wonderful gift, especially as a memorial to a loved one.
