Every underdog needs a champion! And what is an underdog, you might ask? Well, they are the misunderstood, under-appreciated, and often unjustly feared creatures in nature.

While we care about all underdogs, our primary focus is on native North American critters. Think wolves, bats, vultures, opossums & hellbenders, for a start.

Our field guide will introduce you to these underdogs and show you how they make life better for all of us. Join us to become champions for wildlife’s underdogs.
