During the late 1960's, awareness for endangered species began to take root, and by the mid-1970's, governments from around the globe were giving support to protect the dwindling numbers of threatened animals. Although the success stories have been plentiful, it is a sad reality that everyday animals are forever lost to our planet. "Scientists estimate there are 10 to 30 million plant and animal species on the planet, most of them unidentified. Each year as many as 50,000 species disappear." The numbers are staggering even with the cooperation of world governments.

Whether we realize it or not, we are stewards of the land-good or bad. The Earth Stewardship Foundation knows that SISEL Distributors are conscientious of their environments and that is why we are making available to you an avenue by which you can personally increase the populations of some of the most fascinating, unique, and magnificent creatures on the earth.

White
Buffalo

On three hundred acres of plush meadow grass, graze a herd of White Buffaloes that have been considered one of the most sacred animals of North America. For thousands of years, these very rare animals have had great spiritual importance in several Native American religions, and the birth of a White Buffalo is considered one of the most sacred signs. The Earth Stewardship Foundation is providing top-quality feed, miles of roaming space, and most importantly, they are protected from outside harm, thereby increasing the population of this much revered animal.

White
Elk

White Elk are rare animals that have roamed the hills of North America for thousands and thousands of years. On the same three hundred acre ranch as the White Buffalo is a very rare herd of White Elk. They too are protected from outside threats and are allowed to freely roam. Their numbers are increasing, and they are soon becoming a success story.

Snow
Leopard

Snow leopards, sometimes referred to as the "Ghosts of the Himalayas," are considered the world's most elusive big cat. These highly endangered, rarely observed predators live high in the mountains of central Asia. Roaming across twelve Asian nations, from Afghanistan to Uzbekistan, are between 3,500 - 7,000 snow leopards. Due to the cats' solitary and secretive nature and remote habitat, it is difficult to narrow down population numbers.

Their survival is continually being threatened by poachers, who harvest their pelts and body parts; loss of habitat; and the increased conflict with humans and livestock since their main prey-wild sheep and wild goats-are dwinding in numbers as well.
