Conservation

We are committed to donating 10% of all proceeds to reputable conservation and environmental organizations to help protect fragile habitats and endangered species. 

We have partnered with 1% for the Planet to help keep us accountable and to help us reach organizations that need resources.

In 2002, Yvon Chouinard, founder of Patagonia, and Craig Mathews, founder of Blue Ribbon Flies, created 1% for the Planet and started a global movement. 

The idea was simple: because companies profit from the resources they take from the earth, they should protect those resources.

With Patagonia leading the charge, this idea resonated with other brands such as Brushfire Records, Klean Kanteen, New Belgium Brewing, Caudalie and many more followed suit and joined the 1% for the Planet network.

To date, 1% for the Planet has certified over $500 million in donations to environmental causes. This number grows exponentially as their network grows each year—proving the power of collective action.

Sequoia Project is able to support so many organizations but just to name a few:

California State Parks Foundation (CSPF)

Since 1969, California State Parks Foundation has worked to protect and preserve the California state park system, for the benefit of all. With over 80,000 members, the nonprofit organization has been the leading statewide voice in advocating for a sustainably funded state park system, access to parks for all, and enduring park protection.

Outdoor spaces, including California’s 280 state parks, are essential to public health, education, recreation, and quality of life. However, maintaining them requires a tremendous amount of stewardship and care. Natural habitats, cultural resources, and visitor amenities are threatened by funding shortfalls and inadequate staffing – further exacerbated by the impacts of climate change, including devastating wildfires and increased flooding.

 California State Parks Foundation works to meet the challenges facing parks across all areas of its programming. Our state parks need a strong constituency of support from all Californians to protect and steward them.

Their Mission

California State Parks Foundation is dedicated to protecting and preserving the California state park system, for the benefit of all.

California Wildlife Center

For the last 21 years, California Wildlife Center has provided veterinary triage, comprehensive medical treatment, and rehabilitative care to injured, orphaned or otherwise imperiled native wildlife in Southern California. Most of these injuries are a direct or indirect result of human interference. CWC offsets the negative impact by giving these animals a second chance to live out their lives in the wild.

California Wildlife Center continues its critical role for the wildlife of Los Angeles and Southern Ventura Counties by serving animals in need across 6,000 square miles of mountains, beaches, urban, and suburban regions occupied by more than 10.4 million people. CWC is one of only a few wildlife rehabilitation centers in the area, and the only facility in Los Angeles County permitted to rehabilitate Mule Deer fawns, Coyote pups, and hatchling and fledgling songbirds. CWC treats more than 170 unique animal species.

Their Mission

California Wildlife Center takes responsibility for the protection of native wildlife through rehabilitation, education, and conservation. It is dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of native California species, who otherwise would be left to suffer from the effects of human encroachment, habitat destruction and environmental damage.

Sequoia Parks Conservancy

The giant sequoia, Sequoiadendron giganteum, is a large, long-lived, pioneer species found on the western slope of the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California, growing in at least 75 scattered groves within mixed conifer forests. Mature giant sequoia trees, monarchs, can live to be thousands of years old, and until recently their primary cause of death was falling over. Today, however, giant sequoias face three major threats:

  1. Tree mortality in high-severity fires such as the Castle Fire of 2020; 
  2. Being killed by drought-mediated insect attack (between 20 and 30 monarch sequoias have died this way within Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks); and
  3. Death from other unanticipated impacts of climate change such as altered hydrology, snowpack, or other factors.
Their Mission

Sequoia Parks Conservancy funds and enables projects and programs that protect, preserve, and provide access to the natural and cultural resources of Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks.

National Park Foundation

Our national parks tell the story of America and the story of us. From our geography, our lands, our culture, and our people, they embody the essence of a nation forged by the powerful forces of nature, the chronicles of conflict, a spirit of innovation, and an enduring vision of democracy for all. They document our country’s milestones and hold them in perpetuity for the enjoyment and enlightenment of generations to come.

With each generation, our parks evolve along with us, safeguarding our most sacred treasures, and honoring the American spirit that is embodied within us all. Bigger than one place, one story, or one person, America’s national parks represent a profound idea – that the magnificent and meaningful will be protected and preserved for everyone – always.

Their Mission

As the official nonprofit partner of the National Park Service, the National Park Foundation generates private support and builds strategic partnerships to protect and enhance America’s national parks for present and future generations.

Native American Fish and Wildlife Society

The Native American Fish & Wildlife Society (NAFWS) is the only national Tribal organization with a specific focus on Tribal fish and wildlife resources. As a unique membership organization with 227 Support Member Tribes in 7 regions, NAFWS strives to meet the needs of its Individual Members and Member Tribes through conferences, trainings, youth education, and by participating with innovative projects and initiatives in Indian Country.

Their Mission

To assist Native American and Alaska Native Tribes with the conservation, protection, and enhancement of their fish and wildlife resources.

Wildlife Conservation Network

The Wildlife Conservation Network (WCN) is a 501(c)(3) organization founded in 2002 with the mission of protecting endangered species and their habitats by supporting the work of entrepreneurial conservationists who find innovative ways for humans and wildlife to co-exist and thrive. WCN has a unique reputation for efficiency, collaboration, flexibility, and responsiveness in supporting field-based conservationists who are using effective methods to protect wildlife.

WCN’s primary work is to provide support in the form of fundraising, strategic planning, marketing, and capacity building to wildlife conservation programs around the world. Most of these are grassroots efforts in developing countries, with the long-term goal of protecting endangered species by engaging local communities in impactful conservation actions. To date, WCN has raised more than $200 million to support wildlife conservation and has provided funds to support the conservation of at least 115 species in 72 countries around the world. Thanks to the generous support of foundations and individuals who contribute to our operating costs (which are always under 10% of our total revenue), we are proudly able to guarantee that 100% of a donation designated for a specific species is sent to the field to protect that species, with no amount taken out for overhead.

Their Mission

WCN protects endangered wildlife by supporting conservationists who ensure wildlife and people co-exist and thrive.
