  1. The Giraffe Conservation Foundation say there are only about 111,000 giraffe left in the wild.

    Hence World Giraffe Day!  The idea of the day is to raise awareness of the challenges giraffe face in the wild and to raise support.

     

    Buy a t-shirt to raise awareness of World Giraffe Day

    The Giraffe Conservation Foundation have some fantastic t-shirts for sale to raise awareness of World Giraffe Day on the 21 June 2019.   The artwork has been drawn by supporters from all around the world (so copyright on these pics to them). 


    There are lots of styles to choose from

    Each purchase helps support the organisation's programmes in Africa.   And very importantly, it also helps spread the message about giraffe conservation.

    Stretch your neck out and go to the Giraffe Conservation Foundation's website for more information about the day.

    And shop for t-shirts here.   You can buy them in dollars or euros, but I think they are shipped from the US so you may need to pay VAT and more for shipping if you are outside the USA.

  2. It's World Oceans Day!   You'll find plenty of promotional materials on the World Oceans Day website so take a look and see how you can use it to  promote the day!

    Most of us think of water when it comes to World Oceans Day - the blue stuff which turns grey when it gets angry.

    But for Polar Bears International, their focus is on the FROZEN ocean that polar bears and people depend on for survival.   

    Go to Polar Bears International

    Polar bears live on the surface of the frozen ocean - with a complex ecosystem under their huge paws.

    Polar Bears International have highlighted some ways you can help polar bears and the Arctic:

    • Discover  Why Oceans Matter – to Polar Bears  and share the information there

    • Tune in for Live Chats from Svalbard, Norway! 
    • Make a donation and receive a gift from Polar Bears International to help you lessen your impact on thep lanet.  Give a minimum of $65, and they will send you a Polar Bears International Save Our Sea Ice reusable shopping bag (made entirely from recycled bottles) and a special edition polar bear bracelet from 4Ocean! Give a gift of $80 or more and we'll send you a shopping bag, a water bottle, and a 4Ocean bracelet. Learn more here

    They say...each 4Ocean bracelet represents one pound of trash removed from the ocean—helping to prevent potential toxins from entering the marine food web and the polar bears that depend on it. Take a deeper dive
