Save the Wild Chinchilla Fundraiser

Chinchillas make fantastic pets, but it’s an incredible shame that they aren’t still as abundant in the wild as they used to be. That’s why we’re running a fundraiser for the benefit of Save the Wild Chinchilla Inc., a great group from the U.S. who work with local South American organizations to document, study and save wild chinchillas. If you’d like to donate, follow the link above, and if we’re successful we’ll be running plenty more.
