Do you need a one-of-a-kind gift for your recent graduate or for your dad on Father’s Day? Rest easy: we’ve got you covered! 

Your graduate definitely deserves recognition for persevering through these challenging times. Show him or her your appreciation and love for all he or she has accomplished. And don’t forget about dad! Show that special dad in your life how much he means to you and your entire family. 

Any of the gift options below are sure to show your love and gratitude to that special grad or dad in your life. The best part – when you purchase any or all of the gifts online, we’ll take care of getting it all together for you.

Symbolically Adopt-a-Bird

Adopt an animal for your grad or dad! There’s a reason why symbolic adoptions are so popular…because they’re fun to give and receive! Pick from some of our most popular birds, available at multiple adoption levels. You can’t go wrong with this unique gift. All packages come with a personalized certificate and gift message, animal fact sheet, and a picture of the adopted animal. Higher levels also include an educational activity packet and a video message. With the option for digital delivery, adoptions are perfect for a last-minute gift.

Purchase a Penguin Plaque

Show your appreciation for your grad or dad with a limited-edition Penguin Plaque. It includes your very own customizable message, engraved on a brass plate and displayed at the National Aviary's Penguin Point! Brass plates can have up to three lines of messaging and will hang in Penguin Point for at least three years. If you need help with messaging, we're here for you, too!

“I engraved a plaque for my daughter when she graduated from high school. It’s so special to both of us when we see it, and it always brings up a funny or special memory.” 

- L. Nicholl, 2018 Penguin Plaque donor
