Almost Famous Award

Giving Voice to Lesser Known Endangered Animal Species

*** This initiative/award is currently closed ****

The Almost Famous Award gives a voice to animal species that most of us do not know exist and that we might not yet know enough about to keep them in existence. This award hopes to help raise awareness and funds to increase the survival chance of lesser known endangered animals.

Everybody loves cute cats, charming chimps, sensitive elephants, majestic whales and smiling dolphins. Accordingly, lots of awareness and funding is available for these animals. But what about the others?

Please visit the current run by clicking on the link below to learn more about raising awareness for endangered species and supporting our passionate conservation partners. All participating organizations have the chance to win prizes and, at the same time, improve their marketing and fundraising capabilities.
