In support of IFAW
We support IFAW and its mission toward a world where animals and people thrive. With your help through purchasing our turtle and dolphin products, we join together with IFAW to share a message of hope and to support the work they do around the world.

The International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) is a global nonprofit helping animals and people thrive together. They are experts and everyday people working across seas, oceans, and in more than 40 countries around the world. They rescue, rehabilitate and release animals, and restore and protect their natural habitats.
For more than 20 years, International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) has served as the first line of defense for marine mammals in distress. With its international operations center located on Cape Cod, one of the largest global hotspots for mass stranding events, IFAW’s experts have led the way on innovative rescue methods, and in-field health assessments and treatments, that have greatly increased the rate of release success and gone on to become industry best practice. Most recently, IFAW implemented new tracking technology to help evaluate whether dolphins were surviving — and indeed they are thriving! Today, when there’s a complex rescue mission anywhere in the world, IFAW’s experts are the first ones called in to help.
Global tourism is a massive industry. While it can bring enormous benefits to communities, people and animals, it may also come at a great expense to local wildlife and its habitats, including turtles. The International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) promotes a more mindful and sustainable approach to tourism. In its 50 year history, IFAW has undertaken consumer awareness and education campaigns across the globe. In the Caribbean today, the organization’s educational efforts are designed to address illegal wildlife trade that is robbing many nations of their rich biodiversity, and to raise awareness among visitors who are entering and leaving the region. Travelers themselves can make the greatest impact — for turtles and more — through the choices they make and the knowledge they hold.
