Celeborn “The Protector”
Celeborn’s former guardians had good intentions, but they took on too many animals and found themselves in over their heads. Now, safe at Farm Sanctuary, he’s free to live a life of his choosing—and he prefers one where he’s in charge. Celeborn is bossy around people but has a soft spot for the birds he’s trying to impress.
His biggest devotees are the turkey hens who live next door—and he’ll chase off anyone who dares to come too close to his terrain. He’s charming, flirtatious, and extremely protective of those in his inner circle.

About Farm Sanctuary’s Adopt a Turkey Project
Each year during Thanksgiving, the United States slaughters 46 million turkeys for meat. Most live in confinement on factory farms and endure painful mutilations, including debeaking and toe removal procedures without anesthesia. These living, feeling individuals deserve so much better.
Since 1986, Farm Sanctuary’s Adopt a Turkey Project has encouraged people to symbolically adopt a rescued turkey at Thanksgiving instead of eating one. By highlighting the unique personalities and intelligence of turkeys — while also revealing the abuse they face in a food system that harms animals, workers, communities, and our planet — this beloved campaign has reached millions of people with a message of compassion. For a one-time donation of $35, you can symbolically adopt a rescued turkey living at Farm Sanctuary — and for $150, you can sponsor this year’s featured flock.
Plus: This year, we’re introducing the Flock Advocate package! This $500 gift comes with a special Flock Advocate certificate, a commemorative 2023 Adopt a Turkey mug, and an invitation to be part of an exclusive conversation with Farm Sanctuary President and Co-Founder Gene Baur.
