What's Up With Us
We are Bernie and Kathy, a married couple of nearly 20 years. Nature hippies who want to help tip the balance in nature’s favor. Independent thinkers who decided to make a difference without the help of bureaucracy — power to the people/consumer! We have paired our products with six different conservation efforts in order to share our profits with them. You, as a helpful consumer, conserve and preserve with every purchase!
We live in Florida, a state surrounded by ocean that has much to protect, so our focus is our backyard. Dolphins, sea turtles, manatees abound so we happily help preserve them by supporting the efforts of organizations Caretta Research Project, Cedar Key Dolphin Project, and Save the Manatees through our dolphin, sea turtle, and manatee-themed products.
One of our favorite local birds, the Brown Pelican, frequently suffers injuries from fishing lines right here in our town ): . We support our local backyard Seaside Seabird Sanctuary to help protect the Pelicans and other shore birds through our Pablo Pelican products.
A few months of the year during the high heat of Florida summers we live — okay, more like “glamp” think outdoor shower, compost toilet — in upstate NY. We built our own off-grid cabin, just 12’x12’, powered by solar and propane for cooking and heat. We live small on the inside and big on the outside frequently kayaking on one of the Indian River Lakes. We immensely enjoy the nesting pairs of loons that make it their home and have learned so much about them. To help conserve these extraordinary birds, we support the efforts of the Adirondack Center for Loon Conservation.
Our sort of custom is to visit Puerto Vallarta, Mexico in January whenever possible and feasible, where we pause and reflect on the past year and focus on where we would like the New Year to take us. Whales, commonly Humpback, birth and nurture their young in nearby Banderas Bay so we gladly support the efforts of ECOBAC.
Kathy is also an artist with over 20 years in the graphic design field but now back to basics: paint, brush and paper. She is the artist behind many of the designs here on WildlifeMojo.com. Her goal is to support and uplift other artists into the conservation spotlight. We hope to carry limited runs of one-of-a-kind hand-made, art collectibles from time to time. Like all businesses, we are starting out small but we do have some unique artwork to offer other than Kathy’s, just check out our hand painted sand dollars, or the beautiful repurposed art by Nature Coast Creations. Our policy is to buy directly from our artists so you are helping to support artists as well!
If you are a conservation organization, especially in Florida, interested in partnering with us or, an artist interested in creating a collectible line of art for Wildlife Mojo, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Or, just say hi. We would love to hear from you!
