We believe that small changes can make a world of difference.
Our network of conservation partners allow us to connect dollars with doers who are working hard all over our planet to ensure that wildlife and people can coexist and thrive. It is by no accident that most of our products are named after animals. Creating adventure travel gear is WHAT we do, but being able to support so many great conservation programs is WHY we do it. When you shop with STEP 22 a portion of your purchase goes directly to projects aimed at protecting threatened species around the world.
You already are! By supporting STEP 22 you are helping us, and our network of conservation partners around the world, take direct action toward a better planet. You can learn more here about the animals we love and are fighting to save. Next, spread the word! It is hard to save something you know nothing about. Finally, consider rounding up your purchase when you check out; every little bit really does help! If you are able to give even more, sign up to give a monthly donation to the organization (or animal) that you feel most attached to.Explore Our Partners Here
After surviving 400 million years on this planet, sharks and rays are now in serious trouble. Due to pollution, climate change, and over fishing, twenty four percent of sharks and rays worldwide are now endangered to extinction. Sharks and rays are an essential part of the marine ecosystem, their disappearance endangers the oceans. A portion of every Stingray Flat Box sale helps support the conservation of threatened marine species and their habitats. MarAlliance explores, enables and inspires positive change for threatened marine wildlife, their critical habitats and dependent human communities.
We invite you to watch the short video below to learn more about Dr. Rachel Graham and amazing work that she and her team at MarAlliance are doing.Visit MarAlliance
You're not alone! About 70% of the world's population have never heard of them. If you picked up one of our Pangolin Tool Rolls then you probably already know a portion of your money is working hard to save these wonderful scaly-skinned mammals. Illegal wildlife trade has made them more trafficked than any other mammal on Earth. While they are on the verge of extinction, it is not too late. Please join STEP 22, WCN, Save Pangolins, and the Pangolin Crisis Fund to stand up and fight as the voice of Pangolins around the world.
We invite you to visit the Pangolin Crisis Fund website, and also to watch the documentary below by Bruce Young and Johan Vermeulen, two amazing people doing amazing work to help our planet.Visit Pangolin Crisis fund
Africa's elephants could disappear from much of the wild within a generation. These deeply social and complex beings are some of our planets most intelligent creatures. Up to 30,000 elephants are killed every year, driven by the international ivory trade that thrives on poverty, corruption, and greed. This is a full blown crisis and these giants need every ounce of help they can get. The Elephant Crisis Fund fosters collaboration and has funded over 290 projects and 80 organizations in 38 different countries across Africa and the world. Join STEP 22 in our support of WCN, Save The Elephants, and the Elephant Crisis Fund to ensure that elephants have a future on our planet.

The Tenkile and Weimang Tree Kangaroos are Critically Endangered because of hunting and limited distribution. Hunting moratoriums have been in place since 1999. Tenkile numbers have increased from 100 – 300 animals as a result.
The work being done by the Tenkile Conservation Alliance in Papa New Guinea is truly remarkable. Jim and Jean Thomas, who currently lead the TCA, have an amazing story. They have done so much more than give hope to an incredible species, they have given hope to an entire ecosystem of life. We are happy to support TCA, along with the support of our customers, by donating a portion of all Tenkile Tech Pouch sales to help fund the efforts in Papa New Guinea.Visit Tenkile Conservation Alliance
