Got to love Spring Time!!

Posted on by

After what seemed to be a Winter that just wouldn’t go away, Spring is finally setting in. We’ve had babies born on what seems like a daily basis and wild flowers are in full bloom. It’s not very often you can say that in the last 30 days you’ve had Cape Buffalo, Bongo, Kudu, Sable, Nile Lechwe, Nyala and Arabian Oryx babies born. And the funny thing is, that’s not even close to the full list but it’s definitely some of the bigger highlights.

As usual , Dan Verrips does some amazing work.

WildLife Partners In the News

Posted on by

Over the last several weeks, we were contacted by three different media outlets that wanted to hear the WildLife Partners story. However, this isn’t just our story. The hope is this coverage shines a bright light on what Texas is doing to save numerous species from around the world from extinction, including many of which are already extinct in their native lands.

It all started with the fourth article written about WildLife Partners by Sergio Chapa at the San Antonio Business Journal. Throughout the Business Journal’s other articles they’ve not just focused on WildLife Partners but also featured many other who play significant roles in the industry in Texas and beyond.

That was followed by a visit and sit down interview with ABC News Nightline who is doing a story on how Texas ranches are helping save threatened or endangered species.

The last stop was San Antonio’s local ABC affiliate KSAT 12 news.

I’ve attached a PDF version of the SABJ article here. We are not sure when the TV portions will all air, but it should be fairly soon.

The WildLife Partners Family

Posted on by

I know I’ve said this over and over again since we started on this magical journey 2 years ago, but the relationships built and time spent together with our partners is something I will always cherish about this business. Over the last several weeks, we had visitors from California, New York, South Carolina and many places in Texas. In the coming weeks, we have more visits scheduled with partners from Wyoming, Arizona and Georgia. Each visit has it’s own feel to it. Whether we are spending countless hours sifting dirt for Indian artifacts or hanging out watching giraffe being delivered, the memories are priceless and endless. Here’s just a few pics from the recent visits.

What an amazing few weeks!

Posted on by

The outdoor wildlife industry’s biggest convention season starts every year in early January and typically runs through the 1st week in February.  People from all around the world come together at the conventions to tell stories, see old friends while making new ones and and in many cases,  do a lot of business together.  This year’s shows were very special to us because of the incredible level of support we received from our partners.  Between the Houston Safari Club and Safari Club International shows, we had close to 30 of our partners from both the ranch services and investment sides of our business not only attend but actually work in the booth with us.  These partners are much more than that….they have truly become friends.   These pictures don’t show everyone but they do show “everything”.

The pictures below were from the show booths as well as the WildLife Partners partner appreciation dinner we had in Las Vegas at the SCI show.

Hopefully we will see you there next year.

Another great convention with Dallas Safari Club

Posted on by

When we started on this magical voyage several years ago, many people struggled trying to figure out who we were and exactly what we were doing.  Well, at this year’s DSC Convention, it was obvious that many people had figured it out while others still had more curiosity.  This particular show is great in that we meet numerous current and new partners for both our ranch services and investment portions of our business.  We were given a few minutes to speak at one of the evening banquets as well as being featured as a corporate sponsor throughout the entire weekend.

The show was a huge success as we both purchased and sold a tremendous amount of animals while also finding some great new investment partners to join us in profiting from conservation.

Here are a couple of pictures from the show.

What a great end to 2017 and start to the New Year!

Posted on by

The last several weeks have been incredible.  We’ve purchased some of the most amazing animals including some we’ve never had access to in the past such as the Sichuan Takin, Turkmenian Kulan and Grevy Zebra.  The Kulan herd is a very special animal for us and our partners as this is believed to be the last remaining breeding herd in all of North America.  The Takin is also extraordinarily rare.  We don’t know of any others owned by private ranches in the United States and they are listed as Vulnerable by the IUCN Red List.

In addition to these amazing animals, we also purchased Cape Buffalo, Gemsbok, Sable, Kudu, Nyala, Thompson Gazelle and many more.

The convention season is upon us!

Posted on by

January through early February is always a very busy time of the year for anyone in the exotic wildlife business.  The Dallas Safari Club, Houston Safari Club and Safari Club International annual conventions are all in this month.  The shows are amazing and bring together tens of thousands of conservationists from all over the world.  WildLife Partners is proud to be a corporate sponsor of each of these organizations.

At these shows, we get to spread the word on how we are approaching conservation with a model based on capitalism instead of charity.  Along with spending time with current partners, we also meet numerous new conservation and ranch partners at each and every one of these shows who share in our vision of profiting from conservation.

If you are interested in attending any of these upcoming shows, you can contact our office for more details.

The best of the very rare!

Posted on by

We are fortunate enough to work with some amazing species and including numerous species that are either extinct in their native lands or on the verge of it. There are also many species that while plentiful in their native lands, are extraordinarily rare in Texas and the United States.

Today, we were doing some work with some of our more unique and rare species: Markhor goats, Alpine Ibex and Rocky Mountain Big Horn. These are some of the best of the rarest! Thanks to Davin Cox at Venado Sires for helping us draw semen from these awesome animals. Ken Schlaudt and WildLife Partners will be breeding this giant 44” Markhor to produce more just like them.

Another great day at the ranch

Posted on by

When you breed more than 50 species of exotics animals from all over the world, you admire each and every one of them for their majestic beauty. However, one still stands out among them all and its the Giraffe and more specifically a baby Giraffe. We are pleased to announce the arrival of our newest WildLife Partners family member, a 5 month old baby female Giraffe. She is still on a bottle and will be for a few months. Her new family welcomed her with open arms (necks) and she’s doing great alongside her new “sister”.

Both of these awesome animals should be starting their own families in a couple of years.
