Wild Aloha Foundation presents “Pangolin Party”
February 16th is World Pangolin Day, and we are hosting one of many Pangolin Parties around the nation! This will be our first kid-friendly fundraiser featuring interactive games/crafts, a petting zoo, community engagement, and our first ever Pancakes for Pangolins!!
The goal of this fundraiser is to educate our keiki on the most heavily, illegally trafficked mammal on Earth, the Pangolins, and to raise funds to donate to our featured organization, Global Conservation Force, who is actively working to expose the poaching and trafficking issue. It is our contribution that allows them to stay on the front lines rescuing and protecting the disappearing wildlife.
Join us for an afternoon of games, pancakes, and animals!

100% of profits from this event will be donated to our featured organization: Global Conservation Force (ticket profits are donated directly to support GFC and are non-refundable). GCF focuses on supporting threatened wildlife by providing anti-poaching units with the necessary technology and gear to help fight off poachers. Instead of adopting individual animals, with GCF you can “adopt a ranger” and help support rangers in their front line fight against poaching.
From these nationwide World Pangolin Day events, GFC plans to use 50% of all funds raised for their protection, wildlife trafficking investigation efforts, and rehab efforts in Africa/Save Vietnams Wildlife. The other 50% of all funds raised will be donated to Save Vietnam’s Wildlife to support their work in rescuing, rehabilitating, and protecting the endangered Pangolins.
To learn more about what the Pangolins are facing, please watch this short film. It is mildly graphic, and NOT intended for the children to view.
“Pangolins are considered the most illegally trafficked mammal in the world—scaly, cat-size, nocturnal anteaters found in Africa and Asia. Their meat and scales are in high demand for their supposed health benefits, and as a result the pangolin’s population has plummeted. It’s estimated that in the last 10 years, a million pangolins have been trafficked. Earlier this year, 4.4 tons of pangolin scales, labeled as plastic, were seized in Hong Kong, a haul estimated to represent between 1,100 and 6,600 pangolins and be worth $1.25 million (U.S.). Pangolins are now one of the most valuable animals to need protection, and bans are being discussed alongside those of iconic animals like elephants and rhinos.”
Wild Aloha Foundation presents “Monk Seal Matinee”

Join us for an afternoon of bubbly refreshments and a viewing of the film Racing Extinction!*
“In the next 100 years, half of all species on Earth could disappear. There’s still time to turn this around though if each of us takes steps in the race to protect them. Our seemingly small actions do make a difference.” –Racing Extinction

*A brief description about Racing Extinction: a team of artists and activists exposes the hidden world of extinction with never-before-seen images that will change the way we see the planet. Two worlds drive extinction across the globe, potentially resulting in the loss of half of all species. The international wildlife trade creates bogus markets at the expense of creatures that have survived on this planet for millions of years. And the other surrounds us, hiding in plain sight — a world that the oil and gas companies don’t want the rest of us to see. Using covert tactics and state-of-the-art technology, the Racing Extinction team exposes these two worlds in an inspiring affirmation to preserve life as we know it.

100% of profits from this event will be donated to our featured organization: CARE FOR WILD. Based in South Africa, CFW is the largest Rhino orphanage in the world. Founded in 2001, CFW’s mission is to save and rehabilitate every orphaned rhino that they come across. Baby rhinos generally stay with their mother for three years. Because their horns have not yet grown, they are sometimes spared by poachers. Some orphans are found by their poached mother’s side; others survive for weeks in the bush fighting off hyenas and lions. Orphans suffer severe emotional, as well as physical, trauma. CFW brings them to its sanctuary where they receive round the clock care until they are old enough to be released.
Our contribution is what allows them to stay on the front lines rescuing and protecting the endangered wildlife. Mahalo for being a part of the solution! See you at the event!
