Spring is in the air

Posted on by

Wow! It has been one heck of a start to the Spring at the WildLife Partners’ breeding facilities. Over the last 45 days, we have welcomed more than 40 new offspring into the world from 13 species. We’ve got new babies from the following species: Nubian Ibex, Addax, Kudu, Hog Deer, Pere David, Sable, Transcaspian Urial, Cape Buffalo, Markhor, Nyala, Scimitar and Arabian Oryx. We are expecting an enormous amount of new babies over the next 3-4 months.

The highlight of these pictures is definitely the baby Cape Buffalo. WildLife Partners is one of only 3 ranches in Texas to own Cape Buffalo and this is our 2nd baby girl.

I really need to thank our photographer, Dan Verrips, for more amazing pictures. Enjoy!

Their beauty is truly amazing!

Posted on by

We are very fortunate to have 2 of the best wildlife photographers in Texas with Dan and Becky Verrips. Their ability to fully capture the beauty of these amazing animals is priceless. Here are several recent shots taken from both ranches. One specific animal here is an amazing specimen and it’s our new breeder Kudu bull. He is by far the widest Kudu we have ever seen. His horns are 55″x 56″ tall but are 56.5″ wide at the tips. Neither us nor some of our breeder friends in Africa have ever seen one this wide. He is being bred to our Kudu cows that came out of a 67″ bull in hopes to combine his width with that length.

An awesome sight to see!

Posted on by

Over the last few weeks, we have been extraordinarily busy with visitors to the ranches from both current and prospective partners. During one of the recent visits with a family from Houston, we rounded a corner to find an Addax had just given birth to a calf. Seeing new babies is always exciting but to see one so fresh it still couldn’t stand up was awesome! Addax were poached essentially to extinction in their native lands, with less than 200 animals remaining, but they are thriving in Texas thanks to profit minded individual conservationists. Today, it’s estimated there are more than 7,000 of these beautiful animals in Texas.

Here are a few of some great shots taken by Dan Verrips the day after we were there.

An industry that just keeps growing

Posted on by

We had a visitor at our breeding facilities this weekend that had numerous questions about pretty much everything we do at WildLife Partners and the exotic wildlife industry in Texas as a whole. The one thing he brought up over and over again that was so shocking to him was the size of the industry and more specifically the incredibly high demand for these animals. Being a guy from Maine, this is absolutely what should be expected.

Well, at the same time we were visiting both facilities in Mountain Home and Pettus, an annual meeting and auction was taking place in Kerrville, TX. The results actually beat the expectations we had, which were already high. In just 2.5 hours, 105 lots sold for a total of $550,000. Here are some of the specific groups that sold.

1 Male and 1 Female yearling Dama Gazelles – $10,000
1 Male and 3 Female Thompson Gazelles – $25,600
2 Female 1.5 year old Arabian Oryx – $13,000
2 Yearling Female Sable Antelope – $35,000
1 Pair of Gemsbok – $13,500

WildLife Partners LLC and our Partners currently own 20+ Dama Gazelle, 10 Thompson Gazelle, 25+ Arabian Oryx, 60+ Sable Antelope and more than 30 Gemsbok. These are just 5 of the more than 50 species we breed today. As we continue down this path, the appreciation in the value of these animals continues to be steady across most of these species. In fact, when we launched our first partnership about a year ago, Sable cows were selling for about $10,000 each. Now they are selling for about $17,000 each on average and we expect that number to be $20,000 by the end of 2017 as the demand seems endless at this point.

This is what its all about!

Posted on by

Since we started on this incredible journey last April, its been nothing short of amazing. The first animal purchase for our first partnership was last May and we finished 2016 having fully stocked both of our initial partnerships. In total more than 1000 animals were purchased across 37 species. Well, those animals have been doing their part. Since last May, we’ve had more than 120 babies born with nearly every species contributing to those numbers. Below are some recent pictures taken by our photographer Dan Verrips. His work is amazing! Included in these pictures are Scimitar Oryx and Nile Lechwe, both of which are on the endangered species list. The Scimitar has actually been extinct in the wild since 2000 when they were essentially poached out of the deserts of Chad in Northern Africa. Thanks a booming industry and the help of ranches across Texas, a small group of Scimitar were sent back to Chad in 2016. In September, the first baby Scimitar was born in their native lands since they went extinct in 2000.

Thanks to the help of our partners these and many other endangered species are thriving in Texas today.

New family members and partner visits!!

Posted on by

Last week was awesome. We had 2 of our partners visit our breeding facilities with their families and got some great pictures. I’ve said it so many times, but it always rings true. Once you see the operations in person you just can’t help but be amazed at these glorious animals. We pride ourselves on having happy healthy and prolific animals at our facilities and appreciate all of the kind words shared with us by each and every visitor. In some of the pictures below you will see them bottle feeding one of our baby Scimitar Oryx. It’s incredible how fast they grow!!

The partners who visited this week were from San Antonio and Wyoming.

In addition to these visits, we also welcomed the newest members of the WildLife Partners LLC family, 2 Masai Giraffe with a 3rd to be delivered later this week. These are the largest breed of giraffe and the tallest land mammal in the world. These males stand nearly 18′ tall and are simply amazing to be around. Their native lands are Kenya and Tanzania. They sure seemed to feel right at home at our Mountain Home facility.

WildLife Partners Road Trip!

Posted on by

Over the first 5 weeks of the year, WildLife Partners has been on one heck of a road trip spreading the word about this amazing and lucrative $3,300,000 a year industry here in Texas and the specific opportunity that we offer to be a part of it. We were corporate sponsors at the Dallas Safari Club, Houston Safari Club, and Safari Club International conventions along with a booth at the World of Concrete show in Las Vegas. The interest of the attendees at all of the shows was incredible. We feel like we left the SCI show in Las Vegas last week with enough people from all of these conventions interested in becoming partners, that we expect to raise another $10,000,000 in the next 60 days, which would fully fund both our third and fourth partnerships. These partnerships will be housed on our new breeding facility near Pettus, TX. If you would like more information on how you can be a part of this amazing journey, you can either fill out a form at this LINK or contact our office at 210-888-4388.

An awesome day at WildLife Partners newest breeding facility near Pettus, TX

Posted on by

In the fall of 2016, WildLife Partners not only closed out our first $10,000,000 in investments, but we also purchased a new ranch south of San Antonio that will be used to house not only our 2nd partnership but also several more on this 1750 acre facility. These amazing pictures are of animals owned by our 2nd partnership. Currently, that partnership owns more than 400 animals including Sable, Kudu, Dama Gazelle, Arabian Oryx, Black Wildebeest, Chinese White lipped deer and possibly the largest herds of Blesbok and Whitebearded Wildebeest in the United States. We just launched the funding of our third partnership and expect it to fund by the end of March.

WildLife Partners is proud to be a Corporate Sponsor of Safari Club International

Posted on by

From the day we started, we knew our vision of conservation was one of significant importance to our on-going goal to profit from the preservation of many species from all around the world, including many considered endangered or even extinct in their native lands. Quite frankly, if these animals had no monetary value then most of them wouldn’t exist in the world today other than in zoos and parks. Safari Club International (SCI) is the leader in protecting the freedom to hunt and promoting wildlife conservation worldwide. It’s this role that makes us proud to be a corporate sponsor of SCI. We are very excited to be an exhibitor and the Friday Evening Banquet sponsor at their upcoming convention in Las Vegas at the Mandalay Bay Convention center Wednesday 2/1 – Saturday 2/4.

Come by and see us in booth #4248 and we will share how you can PROFIT from conservation.
