Hiding a Yellowstone National Park bison under the Christmas tree or in a year-end gift box isn't exactly easy, but it can be done through the Yellowstone Park Foundation. Kind of.
For $50 the non-profit foundation will send you a 12-inch tall plush bison, and use the money to help fund wildlife research projects such as the park's Wildlife Health Program, which is studying diseases in bison, elk, bats, and other native species.
If you wish, the foundation will even send the package directly to your gift recipient, along with the “Adoption Certificate” personalized with your honoree’s name. You'll also receive an educational fact sheet with color photographs of Yellowstone bison.
To order one (or more), visit this page on the foundation's website.
