'Conservation is Just a Conversation Unless We Take Some Action'

While people know many species are vulnerable or facing extinction, they are often unaware of the challenges those animals face or how to help. An important part of our work is to help children, young people and adults understand the threats to wildlife and show how they can take some action.

 

By purchasing a t-shirt you will be taking some action by making a donation to wildlife conservation, showing people how much you care about nature, beginning conversations about conservation and helping to spread the word of how important conservation efforts are.

 

Our range of 100% cotton, unisex t-shirts currently feature, the following range of animals:

  • Elephants
  • Giraffes
  • Lions
  • Rhinos

and are available in size S to 4XL.

Available Designs:

Free Certificate of Recognition with Every Purchase:
