This year the theme for World Environment Day is biodiversity, focusing on how we can support and rehabilitate nature. At Ashleigh & Burwood, we take lots of inspiration from the diverse natural world around us for our fragrant creations, particularly for the vibrant designs of our Wild Things collection which bring the beauty of nature into the home. After launching our Wild Things collection in 2017, we were keen for the success of our bright, beautiful wildlife designs to give back to the animals which inspired them and we’re proud to be supporting two wonderful charities through sales of the collection.
The Big Cat Sanctuary
The Big Cat Sanctuary* receives 20% of profits from sales of our Wild Things jaguar design Born With Cattitude, inspired by The Big Cat Sanctuary’s own sassy jaguar, Maya.
They provide a peaceful home for over 50 endangered big cats as well as a specialised centre of research. Big cats face many threats in the wild today, including deforestation, the wildlife trade and human conflict. Experts in the breeding of big cats, the Sanctuary is helping to ensure their continued survival through their resident cats, co-ordinated breeding and contributions to frontline conservation strategies.

Also supported by our Wild Things collection is Helping Rhinos**, a fantastic charity working to ensure rhino conservation around the world. We donate 20% of profits from sales of our Rhino Saw Us design to aid their mission.
Due to human activity such as hunting, poaching and habitat destruction rhinos are a critically endangered species today, with less than 30,000 living in the wild. Helping Rhinos’ vision is to lead an innovative approach to conservation that will ensure the long term survival of the rhino and other endangered wildlife in their natural habitat. Among the projects Helping Rhinos support are Ol Pejeta Conservancy, home to the last two northern white rhinos in the world, The Black Mambas, South Africa's first all-female anti-poaching unit, and Zululand Rhino Orphanage.
