CONSERVATION

SUPPORTS THE PROTECTION & CONSERVATION OF ENDANGERED & THREATENED SPECIES

By highlighting threatened or endangered species, SeqOnce hopes to draw attention to conservation efforts. As biologists, we believe humanity is better served when ecologies are maintained and there is diversity of life.

Rhinoceros

The rhinoceros is a magnificent animal, but three of the five species are critically endangered: Javan rhino, Sumatran rhino, and the Greater One-Horned rhino.

These rhinos are threatened by poaching and habitat loss. We can help through efforts such as Sumatran Rhino Rescue. The White rhino was nearing extinction, yet has been brought back from the brink through extensive conservation.

Tigers

Tigers have evolved over thousands of years and are captured in man’s imagination, paintings, and photographs. Habitat loss, illegal tiger trade driven by traditional medicines, and conflicts with local communities endangers the species.

Populations have stabilized and are beginning to rise. Yet, there are still only an estimated 3800 animals remaining in the wild. Initiatives such as Tigers Forever aim to double the number of wild tigers in 10 years.

Poison Dart Frogs

These frogs are native to rainforests of South and Central America. About a quarter of the more than 200 species are listed as threatened or critically endangered the blue poison dart frog (Dendrobates tinctorius a ureus ) is one of these. The primary threat to poison dart frogs is the loss of habitat due to logging and clearing of the rainforest.

SeqOnce supports protecting and conserving endangered and threatened species. A portion of our profit goes to helping those engaged in the critical fieldwork of conservation.
