WildTrack Joins 1% for the Planet
By Hana Ryan Wilson, WildTrack.
Exciting news! WildTrack has recently been accepted as an Environmental Partner with the highly renowned “1% for the Planet” initiative. This partnership signifies not just an acknowledgment of our committed efforts toward wildlife conservation, but also a step forward in solidifying our mission to make a tangible impact on the environment.
For those unfamiliar, “1% for the Planet” is a global movement that connects dollars and doers to address the most pressing environmental challenges of our time. Founded in 2002 by Yvon Chouinard, the founder of Patagonia, and Craig Mathews, founder of Blue Ribbon Flies, the initiative works on a simple but profound principle: businesses that profit from the resources our planet provides should give something back. As such, member businesses commit to donating 1% of their annual sales, not just profits, to environmentally-focused non-profits, thus ensuring a real and impactful contribution.
But why is this partnership so significant for a non-profit like ours?
1. Amplification of Efforts through Financing: Being part of the “1% for the Planet” network offers an unprecedented opportunity to amplify our conservation efforts. With the support of businesses that are equally passionate about making a positive impact on the environment, we can roll out bigger, more ambitious projects with our technology that can benefit wildlife in tangible ways.
2. Collaboration and Networking: By being an Environmental Partner, we get to collaborate with a diverse network of businesses and non-profits from around the world. This means access to a treasure trove of knowledge, best practices, and innovative solutions that have been successful elsewhere. It’s an opportunity to learn, grow, and implement more effective strategies for wildlife conservation in collaboration with others.
3. Raising Awareness: This partnership also offers a platform to raise more awareness about the our specific initiatives and the unique solution that we have developed. Through collaborative campaigns, events, and initiatives, we can tap into a broader audience, educating more people about the importance of the application we are developing and the critical role that footprints can play in the protection and balancing of our ecosystems.
Can you tell we’re excited? Our alliance with “1% for the Planet” is more than just a partnership; it’s a commitment to the future. It reaffirms our dedication to the well-being of our planet and its diverse inhabitants. As we embark on this exciting journey, we want to thank each one of you – our supporters, volunteers, and wildlife tracking community. Together, let’s create a world where nature thrives, and individual and corporate action is balanced with wildlife and sustainability, no matter the size of the footprint.
