In celebration of our 40th Anniversary in 2007, Lowepro entered into a partnership with Polar Bears International to help raise awareness about the endangered Polar Bear habitat and the effects of global warming. We invite you to join us on this quest. A good place to start is PBI's website at www.polarbearsinternational.org. Not only will you find a wealth of balanced information on issues affecting polar bears, you'll learn that 100% of the money they raise goes for the bears. Donate. Volunteer. Get involved. The last chapter isn’t written yet, and we all have a hand in how this turns out.
Connecting underserved children to nature and wildlife is the goal of the “Discover Africa” program at the Safari West Wildlife Foundation (SWWF), and Lowepro proudly supports this venture of conservation through education. SWWF takes an active part in educating the local community through seminars, workshops, wildlife camps for children and more. The preserve, located on 400 acres in California’s wine country, is home for more than 500 exotic mammals and birds. Mammal species protected at Safari West are native to Africa and the island of Madagascar, including animals which are near threatened, threatened—and in the case of the Scimitar-horned Oryx—extinct in the wild.
