We have seen the endemic destruction of forests from Nicaragua to Cambodia, Brazil to the Congo. Our collective irresponsibility and indifference have led us down a dark hole of oceanic pollution and destruction. On top of that, animal poaching is still wildly prevalent, decreasing populations of our most majestic animal at alarming rates.
We aim to do what we can to reverse these outrageous and life-threatening trends. Baja Llama will continue creating the most unique themed, hand made prints that represent the plights our earth is facing. Subsequently, we're donating a portion of the proceeds from the sales of these shirts to their corresponding charities.
OVER 5 TRILLION PIECES OF PLASTIC CURRENTLY LITTER THE OCEAN
Trash accumulates in 5 ocean garbage patches. The largest one being the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, located between Hawaii and California. If left to circulate, the plastic will impact our ecosystems, health, and economies. Solving it requires a combination of closing the source and cleaning up what has already accumulated in the ocean.
The Ocean Cleanup develops advanced technologies to rid the world's oceans of plastic. A full-scale deployment of our systems is estimated to clean up 50% of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch in 5 years.
COOL EARTH IS THE NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION THAT WORKS ALONGSIDE RAINFOREST COMMUNITIES TO HALT DEFORESTATION AND ITS IMPACT ON CLIMATE CHANGE.
Half of the world’s rainforest has been destroyed in the last 40 years. Contrary to the headlines, the rainforest continues to be lost at a faster rate than ever before. But it’s not too late. Cool Earth believes the rainforest can be saved. We just need a new approach. That’s why we don’t create reserves or put up fences. We don’t buy land. Instead, we put local people back in control of their forest. An approach that research is continually proving to be the most effective way to keep rainforest standing. By developing local livelihoods, our mission is to end the cycle of deforestation entrenching villages into further poverty. Creating strong, self-determining communities – not dependency.
WE PROTECT ENDANGERED WILDLIFE AND ECOSYSTEMS THROUGH ANTI-POACHING OPERATIONS, RANGER TRAINING, EMPOWERING WOMEN, AND WORKING WITH LOCAL COMMUNITIES.
Wildlife crime is sweeping the planet. The illegal trafficking of wildlife is now one of the world’s largest criminal industries, with repeated links to terrorism networks.
High Target Species such as elephant, rhino, tiger and gorilla are being hunted to extinction. These animals are the most difficult to protect, as poachers go to the most extreme lengths to kill them. If we can protect these animals, then entire ecosystems are safe.
Anti-poaching rangers form the first and last line of defense for nature. Without the right training, equipment and management they cannot defend the World’s natural heritage for future generations.
We must support these brave warriors – The true heroes in today’s society, tasked with protecting the heart and lungs of Planet Earth.
