We have a special fondness for the underdogs in the wildlife kingdom. And what is an underdog, you might ask? Well, we define them as the misunderstood, under-appreciated, misrepresented, and often unjustly feared creatures in nature.
One of our favorites is the opossum. Despised by many, they are incredible tick eating machines. One opossum can eat 5,000 disease-spreading ticks in a season. Talk about a critter that needs some praise and protection!
Our guidebook will help you better understand how these mighty underdogs make your life healthier and happier. Join us to become champions for their survival.

OUR WILDLIFE GUIDE
So what happens when you meet in your 60’s and it is love at first sight. Well, you get engaged in 8 days and then look at each other and ask now what do we do?
Let’s start by exploring some cool facts about animals & plants, especially the underdogs. Want to learn more? Scout out our additional resource pages with recommended books, apps and websites.
We love seeing how Dale’s wildlife sculptures captivate and engage viewers. Feeling so strongly about the power of art to inspire, we are donating all sculptures and sales proceeds to critical wildlife conservation causes.
If you have a favorite underdog you want to help thrive, how do you get started? To get involved, join a conservation organization (see which ones we trust), learn how to speak out, plant a wildlife garden or become a citizen scientist.
