World Giraffe Day 2016

World Giraffe Day is just around the corner and Creations 4 Wildlife is willing to stick our necks out to help save the world’s tallest animal. We were so excited to hear that our friends at the Giraffe Conservation Foundation had chosen putting people at the center of giraffe conservation as the campaign for World Giraffe Day 2016. Working together with the people of Africa, especially the children, is the type of conservation work we love to support. These children are the future. We must teach them how important it is to save the animals like the giraffes for many generations to come.

Giraffe Conservation Foundation believes that Environmental Education at an early age is the key. The Khomas Environmental Education Programme (KEEP) aims to inspires young Namibians to care for their environment. Through a targeted hands-on field-based programme, KEEP provides them with the opportunity to reconnect with nature. Teaching young Namibians about their environment is essential for the conservation of giraffe and their habitat. KEEP helps to build a culture of environmental awareness by teaching social responsibility and conscientious action amongst young Africans and future leaders. – Stephanie Fennessy, GCF

Our Africa’s Watchtower bracelet was inspired by the towers of giraffes who walk across the African plains. Their long necks make it appear as though giraffes heads are in the clouds, giving them the best view of Africa.

Giraffes are truly icons of Africa. They are found no place else on earth, only in Africa. Standing tall with pride, these gentle animals spend their days walking across the plains. The giraffe is an integral part of the African ecosystem and sadly they are disappearing at alarming rates.

Creations 4 Wildlife wants to help teach and inspire the children of Namibia by raising a minimum of $250 for World Giraffe Day.
That is only 25 Africa’s Watchtower bracelets.

 

Here is a breakdown from the Giraffe Conservation Foundation of what $250 could buy.

  • $15 could support an exciting and interactive day in the bush for a Namibian student
  • $25 could pay for batteries for GPS equipment to monitor giraffe and their movements in the wild
  • $50 could provide KEEP workbooks and certificates for an entire school class
  • $100 could provide a healthy lunch for an entire school class during their field outing or pay for a pair of binoculars to monitor giraffe and their movements
  • $250 could provide transport for a school class to spend a day in the bush with KEEP or pay a month’s salary of a local Kenyan field ranger to monitor giraffe and their movements
  • $300 could pay for a camera trap including batteries and SD cards to monitor giraffe and their movements in the wild
  • $1,000 could support fitting a GPS satellite collar to a reticulated giraffe in northern Kenya
  • $2,500 could pay for one GPS satellite collar to monitor reticulated giraffe movements remotely including download time

 

Children want to learn, they want to make a difference … all they need is to be given the opportunity.

Lemurpalooza at Duke Lemur Center

loris

Calling all lemur lovers, Lemurpalooza is only a week away! On Saturday, June 4th the Duke Lemur Center will be hosting a fun-filled evening where the public can come meet some special primates and learn about how we can help save these truly unique animals. This special evening experience allows families to stroll and view the animals at their own pace (Usually a visit to the center must be a guided tour.) During Lemurpalooza you can symbolically adopt lemurs, which raises funds to help care for the critically endangered animals at the Duke Lemur Center. Keepers and education staff will also be there to answer all questions about each animal that is up for adoption.

If we lived in the area, we would definitely be attending … but since we don’t we decided to support Lemurpalooza in our own way. Starting today through June 4, 2016 Creations 4 Wildlife will donate an additional $2 for every Madagascar’s Jewel bracelet sold. This is in addition to the 40% we already donate, which means that $12 of each lemur bracelet will go directly to lemur conservation!

Order your Madagascar’s Jewel bracelet today and help save lemurs!

Giving Species Hope for Another Tomorrow

ESD2016

This Friday is Endangered Species Day and we have some exciting things planned to help raise awareness about the importance of protecting endangered species. Over the next three days we will be sharing animals facts and wildlife photos on our social media channels that will bring attention to the plight of many endangered species. We will also be hosting a special giveaway on Instagram for all of the giraffe lovers.

In addition, as a way to show our appreciation and say Thank You, we will be holding a fun contest where the winning nonprofit organization will receive an additional $100 donation from Creations 4 Wildlife!

$100 ESD FB (1)

The contest will run from Thursday, May 19 through Saturday, May 21, 2016. Every bracelet that is sold during the contest counts as one vote. Example: for every rhino bracelet sold, the International Rhino Foundation will receive one vote; for every elephant bracelet sold, Save the Elephants receives one vote and so on. We will tally the votes on Sunday, May 22, 2016 and announce the winner on our Facebook page. You will determine which endangered species wins the contest based on which bracelets are purchased during the three days.

Be sure to share the Creations 4 Wildlife Endangered Species Day contest on social media and tell your friends to cast their vote too. The more votes your favorite nonprofit receives, the better chance they have of winning the $100!

The contest is open to all US and Canada residents. Unfortunately, at this time we do not ship overseas due to high shipping costs.

Shop now and help your favorite endangered species win $100!

When you shop with us, we donate 40% of every sale to designated wildlife organizations working in the field. Your purchase gives hope that these endangered species can be saved.
