Join the 2019 GISH Hunt for the best summer of your life and you’ll help protect the saola (aka “Asian Unicorn”), the world’s most endangered land mammal. Estimates say there could be only 70 left on Earth! Illegal logging and poaching threatens their existence (along with that of hundreds of other species). But you can help. Here’s how:
This year, we’re saving Asian Unicorns by protecting 2,000 acres of their critically endangered forest home. For every registration, gift, or donated gisholarship, we’ll protect 1/4 acre of this precious habitat. The animals don’t have much time left, and neither do you: March 5th is your last day to get on board to save them! Join GISH and invite your friends to get weird with you this summer… when you do, you’ll help save the unicorns.
GISH is partnering with the Rainforest Trust to preserve 2,000 acres of forest in the Greater Northern Annamites (GNA) in Laos.
Why this region? Glad you asked…
The GNA is ranked as one of the 200 most important bioregions on earth. With over 134 mammal species, 500 species of birds, and countless fish and reptile species, the GNA has the single highest concentration of endemic species for a continental area in the world, including the Asian unicorn (saola) and three of the world’s most endangered species of primates.
These beautiful creatures don’t exist anywhere else, but illegal logging and poaching has caused widespread devastation, habitat loss, and death… and now, there may be as few as 70 Asian unicorns left on the planet. But with your help, we can save them.
Every registration, gifted registration, and gisholarship donated will help protect this delicate ecosystem and save the unicorns. So this summer, not only will you be able to have the weirdest week of your life doing GISH, but you’ll help save one of the most biodiverse regions on the planet from certain destruction.
Mount up and join the GISH Hunt! This year, we’re having fun & SAVING THE UNICORNS!
Some of the species your GISH registration will be helping to save include:
