Oceana is an amazing organization that was created in 2001 to identify the problems with our oceans and then coming up with practical solutions to implement. For the holidays, they’ve created an adopt a creature set that I think is a great gift idea for anyone on your shopping list. Oceana’s Adopt a Creature set offers online shoppers up to 6 sea creature cookie cutters and 4 sea creature plush toys they can virtually adopt in someone else’s name. Gift recipients receive an adoption certificate, creature facts and a sugar cookie recipe with the cookie cutters. You can view all creature options at

This year as part of our 2009 Adopt a Creature program we are teaming up with one of their youngest supporters to help promote our holiday program. 12-year old sea turtle advocate Casey Sokolovic was a finalist for our Ocean Heroes contest this year and has an inspiring story volunteering for a local sea turtle rescue center in her home state of North Carolina. As part of her efforts, she baked thousands of sea turtle cookies and held bake sales that raised over $3,000 for the protection of these beloved creatures. In her honor created a special sea turtle adoption package valued at $200. For more information on Casey you can visit our Ocean hero page:

Full disclosure: sent me a press kit with an awesome stuffed hammerhead shark became best friends with my Murakami stuffed creature.
