Making a living and growing a business in the hunting industry is special. Hunters are more passionate end users than individuals in any other specialty past time we have ever come across. Skiing, climbing, motorsports, cycling, etc…. you name it and there isn’t much else that compares to the hunting community and the passion hunters have for wildlife and the outdoors. We are no different at Stone Glacier. Not only is it sound business practice to protect our right to hunt and to conserve the animals we love to pursue but personally and professionally we are proud to go above and beyond the norm. If you look inside the walls of Stone Glacier you’ll see that we have rooted ourselves in the conservation community. One of our employees founded and runs the Rocky Mountain Goat Alliance. Another started an organization known as 2% for Conservation. And, one of our spouses is an employee of the Wild Sheep Foundation. So, you can see…it’s more than just talking the talk. It’s walking the walk.
Here are a few of the ways Stone Glacier helps protect the future of wildlife:
2% for Conservation Business Member + Stone Glacier is a Certified Business Member of 2% for Conservation which means we annually give back at least 1% of every sale to conservation groups as well as contribute at least 1% of our employee’s time to volunteering with conservation groups. To learn more about 2% for Conservation visit www.fishandwildife.org
Wild Sheep Foundation – We Give Campaign + In addition to being a WSF Gold Sponsor as well as a sponsor of their <1i Club, Stone Glacier has also committed to giving back $5 for every pack sold to WSF’s We Give Campaign. We Give Campaign dollars are ear tagged to go directly back to on-the-ground conservation projects to “Put and Keep Sheep on the Mountain.” To learn more about WSF’s We Give Campaign visit www.wildsheepfoundation.org
Rocky Mountain Goat Alliance + Stone Glacier’s General Manager and longtime employee, Peter Muennich, founded the Rocky Mountain Goat Alliance with the mission to increase and enhance the management, range and populations of Rocky Mountain Goats across both native and suitable non-native North American habitats without negatively impacting native ungulates while educating the public of ongoing conservation projects and petitioning for the expansion of sustainable hunting opportunities across the continent. Stone Glacier is proud to be a sponsor of RMGA. To learn more about RMGA visit their website at www.goatalliance.org.
Non-Profit Donation and Discount Program + An important way conservation groups raise money is through fundraising campaigns. These campaigns often rely heavily on donated or discounted merchandise for resale in the form of raffles, games, sweepstakes, etc. Stone Glacier has developed a program to support all pro-hunting and fishing non-profits by offering them fully donated or deeply discounted product for use in their fundraisers. If you are a volunteer for a non-profit and are interested in more details of this program, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
