$1 for One.
SpeeZees is all about bringing attention to species we love, one t-shirt at a time.
At SpeeZees, we want to play a role - however small - in what has become an increasingly conscious global movement for positive change. Which is why we've created SpeeZees' $1 for One.® campaign, honouring the organizations and the people within them that are working tirelessly to bring about substantive awareness of the species extinction crisis taking place and change to get things shifting.
Through $1 for One.® $1 from every SpeeZees tee sold goes directly to the dedicated organization working to restore and preserve each t-shirt's species.
We invite everyone to share the great news about SpeeZees, to learn more about each of the organizations we're celebrating, and, if possible, to donate to and assist them further!
$1 for One.® Support the extraordinary work of BirdLife International and its Save the Albatross Campaign by purchasing a SpeeZees Amsterdam Albatross t-shirt in Beluga White. Made with love from 100% GOTS certified organic cotton.
Scientific Name: Diomedea amsterdamensis
IUCN Status: Critically Endangered
Population estimate: Less than 100
Region: The Amsterdam Albatross is a huge albatross which breeds only
on Amsterdam Island in the southern Indian Ocean, one of the most remote
islands in the world.
Habitat: During the breeding season, birds forage both around Amsterdam Island and up to 2,200 km away in subtropical waters.
Greatest threats to its continuation: The island on which this Amsterdam Albatross breeds has undergone a significant decline in habitat condition due to the introduction of feral cats and cattle. These seabirds are also threatened at sea by the practice of long-line fishing. Because there is only one breeding location, they are also especially vulnerable to disease.
