We know you care about endangered animals but how far would you go to help them?
As a valued WWF supporter, we’re inviting you to register for Wild Onesie Week 2015.
The inaugural Wild Onesie Week held last year was an incredible success.
We raised over $115,000 for endangered species conservation work in Australia and around the world.
Last year, over 1,200 participants were inspired to cast their inhibitions aside and wore an animal onesie while going about their daily business for a day, and for some, the entire week!
This year we aim to double the number of participants and need you to help us to ‘RAISE MORE THAN EYEBROWS’.
We’re hoping to see our onesies worn in the office, the supermarket, schools, hospitals and cafes across Australia.
WWF are also excited to introduce a brand new ‘species’ to our official onesie range in 2015.
‘Hopping’ into our onesie range this year to join our panda onesie is a world-first rock-Wallaby onesie.
Earlier this year, we asked you, our valued social community to vote on which animal you’d like to see represented.
The black-flanked rock wallaby was close to most people’s hearts and the clear favourite. So we have developed a new onesie in the hope of raising awareness about endangered species in our own backyard.
As WWF are committed to making Wild Onesie Week a sustainable campaign, these onesies have been ethically produced and made using 100% certified organic cotton.
So why not form a ‘Mob of Wallabies’, ‘Embarrassment of Pandas’ or a ’Streak of Tigers, or unleash whatever animal you prefer!
And while #WILDONESIE is bound to be a really fun event that will see the streets of the nation overrun with animals, there’s also a serious message: our official panda and rock-wallaby onesies represents endangered animals.
Let’s face it, becoming extinct is no laughing matter.
● There are fewer than 200 black-flanked rock-wallabies in the Central Wheatbelt of Western Australia.
● Fewer than 63,000 orang-utans exist in the wild. Of these, the majority are found in Borneo with a tiny population of about 6,000 surviving in Sumatra.
● The only significant breeding stock of loggerhead turtles in the South Pacific Ocean nest in Queensland, but since the 70s numbers have declined from about 1,000 breeding females to just a few hundred.
● Only 1,500 pygmy elephants remain in the wild in Borneo.
● In 100 years, tiger numbers have declined from 100,000 to as low as 3,200.
It’s sobering stuff, but by dressing as one of these extraordinary animals this winter, you’ll not only have a great time, you’ll be raising awareness and much needed funds to really make a difference.
