The TOMS Animal Initiative is a series of partnerships planned to conserve and protect animals. Sparked by the passion and love for animals, Heather Mycoskie has created the TOMS Animal Initiative, which is an overarching platform to drive awareness and monetary funding for global animal conservation. Through our first partnership, TOMS is proud to be able to support the Virunga National Park and its efforts to save the mountain gorillas in the Democratic Republic of Congo, who are threatened by poachers and habitat destruction.
TOMS Chief Animal Lover Heather Mycoskie was inspired to start the TOMS Animal Initiative when she learned that wild lions are at risk of being extinct.
"I felt like there was so much we could do by coming together to save these and other majestic animals,” says Heather. “Combining my love for animals and my love for TOMS made perfect sense.”
Through the TOMS Animal Initiative, TOMS will be partnering with non-profit animal conservation organizations to drive awareness and funding for global animal protection.
