With so many scam charities and businesses that claim to do good out there, consumers need to be on the lookout for scams. It is a shame that people would take advantage of the generosity of others in such a way, but it is a reality of the world we live in.
Because of all of these unethical operators, we are often asked if Wildlife Collections is legitimate. Many of the people who ask this have been taken advantage of in the past, and they don’t want to give money unless they are sure. We understand these feelings and we encourage people to do their research before buying from companies that claim to support wildlife causes.
Is Wildlife Collections Legitimate?
Yes. Wildlife Collections is legitimate. We partner with a variety of wildlife conservation organizations and we really do donate a portion of the proceeds from every purchase to the organizations connected with the campaigns.
With that said, several businesses do claim to do the same thing we do and they even mimic some of our branding and activities in the hopes that consumers will not be able to tell the difference. These companies go by names like Ocean Project, Wildlife Team, and Wildlife Mission and they advertise products that are similar to ours.
NBC recently did a story on some of these scam brands. In the article, they highlighted some of the scam sellers and warned people about the tactics they use. In the story, they also highlighted Wildlife Collections as a legitimate partner of conservation programs like the Sea Turtle Conservancy (STC).
At Wildlife Collections, we partner with a variety of conservation organizations. We contribute to these conservation groups by creating products people can buy to support the cause. When people buy our bracelets, we donate a percentage of the proceeds to the organization connected to the campaign.
Along with getting the campaign bracelet, we also offer reliable animal tracking. Each bracelet comes with an animal to track. As an example, if you buy a bracelet from the STC campaign, you will get a turtle to track. You can learn about the turtle and use the tracking map to see where it is and where it has been. Through these efforts, we have been able to donate hundreds of thousands of dollars to these important causes.
Our Trusted Wildlife Conservation Partners
We take great pride in the groups we choose to partner with. They are some of the most trusted wildlife conservation groups in the world and they do great work to study and protect species that need our help.
Our current list of partners includes the Sea Turtle Conservancy, Save the Elephants, Polar Bears International and the Orca Research Trust. All of these organizations have great reputations and we hope to partner with more conservation groups in the future.
You don’t have to worry when you buy from Wildlife Collections. We are a legitimate partner of these groups and you can see our company listed as a partner on the website of each organization. If you are ever contacted by another company claiming to work with conservation groups, make sure to take the time to do some research and find out if they are legit.
