Behind our Wildlife Collection

We are so passionate about animals and insects our wildlife jewellery will eventually become House of Halos largest collection. Through our sales we strive to help the protection of every endangered species and our first efforts are aimed at helping bees –

90% of all wild plants exist because of Bees.  75% of our food crops are pollinated by Bees.  It is estimated the USA Honey Bee has declined since 2006 to 45%.  The UK Bee has declined since 2010 to 40%.  The UK is the 2nd worst accounted for out of 41 European Countries.  European Bee losses are estimated to be in the regions of 53%.

House of Halos has collaborated with “The UK Bumblebee Conservation” and a percentage of profits will help fund and support this charity through sales from our Bee collection.

 

Rhinos have lived on earth for over 40 million years. Approximately half a million rhinos once roamed earth in 1900’s, fast forward to 1970 that figure became 70,000.

There are 5 species of Rhino, 2 species on the brink of extinction. These are ‘Sumatran’, ‘Javan’, ‘Greater 1 Horned Rhino’, ‘Black’ and ‘White’ Rhino.

‘Sumatran’ Rhino population is estimated to be 80 remaining and this mammal has been on earth longer than any other living mammal. ‘Javan’ Rhino is perhaps the rarest of large mammals on earth with population estimated to be 67 remaining.

In Africa alone Rhino poaching had a growth of 9000% during 2007-2014 with approx 7500 Rhinos killed for their horns to poachers.

90% of elephants have been lost in the past century.  In 1800 there were an estimated 26 million elephants, today it is estimated there are only half a million African elephants and 50,000 Asia elephants remaining.  Devastating statistics.

Illegal ivory trade is at its highest ever level in 20years.  41 tons of Ivory was seized in China between 2012-2014.  More elephants are being poached than there are being born.  65% of Elephant rangeland will be compromised by 2050 due to human encroachment.

These animals are in urgent need of our protection and a percentage of sales of profits from House of Halos Wildlife Rhino and Elephant collections will be helping to support ‘David Shepherd Wildlife Conservation
