ENDANGERED ANIMALS TAKE CENTRE STAGE

July 02, 2019 1 Comment

We love animals just as much as you do, so we’ve picked a selection of our favourite friends who desperately need a little attention, and a little help, for our next collection. Inspired by creatures found everywhere from the oceans to the rainforests, we’re bringing you 15 new designs so you can adopt your favourites.  

As well as brooches, a necklace and earrings,to spread a little joy, and do some good, we’ve aligned with the wonderful people at the Wilderness Society. We’ll also be donating $2 from the sale of each design in the range, on launch day, to support their wonderful work. For facts on our friends, whether furry or feathered, with wings or fins read on and learn more.  

The Greater Bilby

The Greater Bilby, Australia’s answer to the Easter Bunny,  is known best by its long silky blue-gray fur. Our omnivorous, rabbit-eared bandicoot buddy uses her long ears to keep her cool, and looking cool when that southern sun starts heating up. Can you dig it?

Blue Whale

Blue whales are the largest mammal to have ever lived. In the heart of the sea is where you will find this kinetic krill eater and her calf. Though she may be occasionally found in the Bay of Plenty, New Zealand, there could as few as 10,000 of this big miracle’s brethren left in the wild. The Blue Whales tongue can weigh as much as an elephant, and its heart is the size of a small car.  

Red Panda

Communicating through twitters, tweets and whistles, our red bear-cat friend gets around with an adorable waddling gait due to his relatively short front legs. Native to the Himalayas and southwest China, the Red Panda wraps itself in its fluffy tail when it gets cold. With fewer than 10,000 left in the wild, these furry little fellas need all the help we can give.  

Tarsier

Making his home on the tiny volcanic island of Siau, the carnivorous Tarsier has long and powerful hind legs that allow him to jump distances more than 40 times its own body length. Each one of the Tarsiers eyes is heavier than its brain, and they can rotate their heads at 180 degrees without moving their bodies. Although, he is yet to translate this ability to athletic competition. 

Orange Bellied Parrot

Only breeding in Tasmania Australia, most of the Orange Bellied Parrot population will migrate to Victoria or South Australia in the winter and is only one of three parrot species known to migrate. This bright, beaked wanderer and ALL of his friends travel all the way across the Bass Strait to South Australia on Winter holiday. Their hotel of choice? Eucalyptus trees or a nice tall shrub.  

Kakapo

I may be the world’s only flightless parrot, but my olfactory aptitudes are second-to-none. Look for me and my owl-like face the next time you’re near Hauturu or Little Barrier Islands. Also called the Owl Parrot, the Kakapo is said to have a sweet smell, so they can easily find each other in the forest.

Sumatran tiger

Eenie Meenie Miney Moe, catch a tiger by the webbed toe! You’re it! Unlike most of their big cat cousins, Sumatran Tigers love water and swimming, and will go for a swim to cool off on a hot day (hence the webbed toe). Though you might have some trouble finding Hobbes because of his primed-for-camouflage thin stripes.  

Orangutan

With a name that literally translates to ‘person of the forest’, this most intelligent of the primates has also managed to turn arboreal locomotion into an art form especially with arms that grow longer than their bodies. With tremendous strength, Orangutans are able to hand upside-down for long periods of time from branches.  

 

Come with us and meet the rest of the bunch, learn some more fun facts, and help us help them.

Absolutely gorgeous brooch!

This design is so simple and cute yet adds so much to any outfit. It is a good smaller size which is to my likening which also helps it fit with so many outfits and colours. Shipping was super fast and I was so glad to receive this product! Would highly recommend :)

Happy Dance

Recently received my very 1st puchase (Benjamin Bunny) to gift to my daughter for her upcoming birthday. Everything from the beauty & quality of the brooch through to the gorgeous gift box, cute tissue wrapping & fun messages on the outer box is just stunning. So refreshing to see a business care about their product & customer satisfaction. I have now ordered the Cupcake brooch. Have to decide to keep or gift....

So cute

I love my pins. They arrived super quick and they were packaged so nicely. The pins themselves are a great size and really good quality.
