National Wildlife Rescue Patch for National Fish and Wildlife Foundation
You don’t have to be Smokey the Bear to care about your national wildlife. From wildfires to weather events annihilating our coastlines; our national parks, animals, and fish need help from humans more than ever. The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) works towards addressing conservation conflicts and prepare for future challenges impacting fish, wildlife, and local communities across the country.
Our patch featuring Bigfoot himself will send sales towards this nonprofit that specializes in bringing all parties together to the table to protect and restore imperiled species, promote healthier oceans, improve landscapes for wildlife, and conserve water. They award grants to many different types of programs that help all kinds of wildlife if you’d like to find out about a specific program visit www.nfwf.org/programs.
By using clear criteria on how and where to invest their resources, NFWF maximizes its impact on both the species and ecosystems that are the most in need of conservation. The key to their decision-making is to base decisions on strong, science-based evidence. If you believe in science proven facts and conserving the land and lives of our nation’s animals, get this patch today!
Save the F*ing Rainforest Patch for Rainforest Foundation US
Did you know that the entirety of the human species depends on rainforests? They provide stability to our climate and even absorb 30% of the world’s CO2 emissions each year. Rainforests are even a source of life-saving medicines! They are also the home to more than HALF of the world’s plant and animal species, so do you really need more of a reason to save the f*ing rainforest?
Our tucan donned patch’s profits will go towards the Rainforest Foundation US. This nonprofit organization protects the rainforests of Central and South America by working with the indigenous communities that call them home. By investing directly in indigenous communities, they connect people who are deeply motivated to conserve their ancestral lands with the tools, training, and resources necessary to protect their rainforests.
The Rainforest Foundation US has found out that rainforests that are protected by the indigenous communities that are living in them have the lowest rates of deforestation in Central and South America. You can learn even more about the history of deforestation, its impacts and ways we can prevent it in this comprehensive guide by Rachel Brown. So do your part, save the rainforest and show your interest on your favorite Dime Bag.
Save the Bees Patch for Pollinator Partnership
We’ve all heard it, bumblebees are at risk, thanks to habitat loss, climate change, pathogen spillover, and harmful pesticides. Why does it matter if bumblebees go the way of the dinosaur though? Well, they are an important part of our ecosystem, they pollinate many important food crops and keep our growing things growing!
That’s why we’re donating to Pollinator Partnership, their mission is to promote the health of pollinators, critical to food and ecosystems, through conservation, education, and research. This nonprofit also manages the North American Pollinator Protection Campaign, which is a collaborative group of over 120 organizations and individuals that promote and implement a content-wide action plan that encourages activities that protect the health of all pollinating animals.
Bees are an important, but fragile part of our lives, we should all take a little bit of time to appreciate the fuzz butts that help our food grow. Once they’re gone, we don’t have a solution, so support the bees and tell anyone who will listen that they need our help!
