For Love Of All Things (FLOAT) is very excited to have partnered with The WILD Foundation for the entire week of Earth Day!
FLOAT is a Denver-based organization aimed at creating funding for the world’s best environmentally and animal-based non-profits. Needless to say, The WILD Foundation is high on our list! FLOAT partners with a new organization each week and designs a limited edition t-shirt that’s representative of a cause within that organization. The shirts are sold through our website at www.float.org for one week only and for each item sold FLOAT donates $8 to that week’s charity. Once the week is up, the shirt is gone and we donate whatever dollar amount the ‘ticker’ at the top of our site says. Simple as that!Read More
All of us here at MyChelle Dermaceuticals are so excited to be partnering with The WILD Foundation for Earth Day 2013!
Here at MyChelle, we are inspired by Earth’s beauty every day – so much so, that we use only the most potent, natural ingredients Mother Nature has to offer to create products that deliver visible results without using any nasty ingredients or toxic chemicals. This inspiration, combined with a passion to create the most effective, nontoxic skin care products, has made us the #1 brand of facial skin care in natural grocers. And, to give back to the planet that has given us so much, we think it is important to support programs that help to keep her beautiful.Read More
Finally, we have an interactive, online identification platform for wild nature: Project Noah! How can we use it, you ask? Well, read on and I’ll tell you!
Here in beautiful Boulder, Colorado we have an abundance of wildlife just about everywhere we go. For instance, today on my daily afternoon hike in the Wonderland Lake Wildlife Sanctuary, I spotted dozens of black-tailed prairie dogs, a few mule deer grazing in the foothills, countless types of birds, insects, flora & fauna. In my own backyard we’ve had visiting squirrels, birds, the occasional wandering elk and even a black bear! I have a pretty good understanding of organism identification, but I wouldn’t quite call myself a naturalist. Unless I bring a nature book with me, I can’t always be certain that I’m determining the correct species.
I’m very excited to announce that The WILD Foundation is partnering with my newly-founded Friends of the Red Wolf organization. The Friends group was officially launched in January of this year, and its main mission is to support the conservation of wild red wolves. Never heard of a red wolf? Don’t worry, you’re not alone. They are a little-known and elusive mammalian predator that is believed to have once inhabited the forests of the southeastern United States. I organized the Friends group after working for the past several years on a book that traces the natural history and modern management of reintroduced and highly endangered red wolves.Read More

The main wave of the warfare in Mali has washed over the Gourma Region and the elephant range, and its immediate threat is diminished thanks to intervention from the French. However, mop-up work is still occurring in the Gourma as some of the jihadis and rebels are in hiding in the area, trying to flee. The next main phase of counter-insurgency will now begin, which is less certain and far more challenging, but mostly centered in the North…we hope.Read More
