That Fish Place has donated 5 gift cards which can be used online or in their store in Lancaster, PA.

Each fun pack will include two tickets to the Wildlife Center at Refreshing Mountain in Stevens, PA
Each fun pack will include a Forgotten Friend shirt (skunk not included)
Each fun pack will include our GIVE REPTILES A CHANCE iguana sticker, for your car or cage or forehead
Each fun pack will include our awesome adorable bookmarks
You never know if you’ll receive an iguana shirt or a turtle shirt in your fun pack, it’s a Christmas mystery!


Even if you don’t enter the contest, consider ordering Rainforest Fundraiser calendars for everyone on your Christmas list! All proceeds from the calendar sales go to The Rainforest Trust, to preserve critical rainforest habitat. Bob Ferguson’s amazing wildlife photography features birds, mammals, reptiles, and amphibians, from all around the world. Please check them out at the link below!
