As a wildlife-themed clothing company, OMUNKY feels it is very important to support our surroundings. OMUNKY's designs often portray the living environment in comical ways, but it is important to realize that preserving our ecosystem is no laughing matter. Due to human influence, our planet needs us now more than ever. Here are some organizations that are dedicated to preserving and restoring the world's various ecosystems.
Every year thousands of endangered animals are killed for their skins, ivory, fins, and other body parts to satisfy the global market for illegal wildlife products. WildAid’s goal is simple and specific, to eliminate the illegal wildlife trade and allow threatened species to recover to safe levels. WildAid believes that the ecological damage, cruelty and corruption involved in the illegal wildlife trade are both unnecessary and morally unacceptable - that these activities constitute a theft from future generations. WildAid believes that it is the duty of both the governments and citizens of wealthier nations to provide technical and financial support to less wealthy nations to protect our common heritage. WildAid wants a world where our invaluable natural riches are not ravaged, one in which local communities can improve their lives without destroying their environment, and where humanity can survive together with wildlife for generations to come.
