The essence of Ivy & Rigg is that small contributions combine to make a big difference.
We are proud to announce we have formally collaborated with the Wildlife ACT, a conservation NGO on a mission to save Africa’s endangered and threatened wildlife and wild places from extinction. The Wildlife ACT operate in eastern South Africa, working to protect elephants, rhino (black and white), African wild dogs, cheetah, vultures, leopard and lion.
Each item in our Hadrian, Longsands and Akenshaw Collections include a £1 donation that goes directly to the Wildlife ACT, helping fund real wildlife conservation in Africa.
Tracking and long-term monitoring is essential for conservation. Many African game reserves do not have the capacity or funds to do such, so the Wildlife ACT provide them free of charge through projects funded and undertaken by volunteers. They also work on re-introduction and community conservation programmes.
Working 365 days a year monitoring and protecting African wildlife, the daily effort that works to safeguard these species if profound so much so they are supported by the WWF for their commitment and contributions to protecting African wildlife.
