Wildlife Artists, Inc. - 2018 Catalog

Welcome to the New Us! After two decades of celebrating wildlife by creating plush that are “the closest thing to the real thing,” it has become clear that wildlife today needs advocates more than fanatics. We are proud to say that, moving ahead, Wildlife Artists, Inc. will honor wildlife through education and conservation initiatives. Our mission is to use our business to forward conservation efforts by creating plush with authenticity and artistry that inspire an appreciation for nature and adventure. This year we’re excited to announce we’ve rededicated our Conservation Collection ® brand. Hubas ™ will be our first plush line launched under the Conservation Collection ® . “Huba” means “love” in Swahili and the proceeds will go towards Zambezi Elephant Fund’s efforts to save African Elephants (see page 18). The Zambezi Valley has a special meaning to our family. It’s where we fell in love with animals and conservation over 40 years ago. It’s a place we regularly visit to follow our passion for wildlife photography. Also check out our new Little Ndaba line. These beautiful plush are handmade with organic cotton and provide a source of income for Zambian women; lessening their need for family members to illegally poach surrounding Zambezi Valley wildlife (see page 58).

Conservation Pledge Pledge Sincerely, James, Caroline and Gerry Ward

What hasn’t changed? Our commitment to high quality products and great service. That will never change. Join us in making a positive difference in the world!
