How can I help the Attwater’s prairie-chicken?
Participating in the Adopt-A-prairie-chicken program helps fund captive breeding programs that are vital to the Attwater’s prairie-chicken’s survival. Those wanting to help the Attwater’s prairie-chicken can adopt a bird through the program and in so doing provide much-needed resources for future generations of Attwater’s prairie-chickens.
Education is also critical for this species. Tell those in your community about the pressures this bird faces and the potential for extinction that exists on the prairie today. Encourage others to become involved in supporting the species. Reach out to the Refuge or Friends if you know of groups that would be interested in learning more about this incredible species.
Where do the funds go?
100% of funds donated to the Adopt-A-Prairie-Chicken program are distributed directly to organizations that propagate this endangered grouse.
What do I get with my adoption?
Adopters receive a certificate recognizing their contribution, updates on the successes of the programs that benefit from your donation, and a one year gift membership to Friends of the Attwater Prairie Chicken Refuge.
Can I adopt anonymously?
Yes, simply enter ‘Yes’ in the anonymous adoption field at checkout.
