At Amber Wolf Studios we believe in giving back to the community.
After hearing about the 1995 Reintroduction of Wolves in Yellowstone, we wanted to achieve the same impact with Amber Wolf Studio on our local community. We believe through our giving back that we can start our own ripple effect in our community.
“Yellowstone National Park was plagued by defoliation, erosion and an unbalanced ecosystem, but everything changed when wolves were reintroduced to the park in 1995. When wolves were brought back to the park, they not only killed elk, but also changed their prey’s behavior patterns. The herbivores started to avoid areas like valleys and gorges where they could be easily hunted by predators. As a result, those areas began to regenerate, and species such as birds, beavers, mice and bears returned. Plant life once again thrived along the riverbanks and erosion decreased significantly. The stabilization of the riverbanks actually made the rivers and streams change course. With the reintroduction of just a small population of wolves, the landscape of the whole park transformed.”
We adopted our first beehive in 2020, and our second in 2021!
“Our #honeybeeheroes adopt-a-beehive program offers people from around the world an opportunity to directly help honeybees without the challenges of operating their own beehives. It’s a simple, hands-off way to aid nature’s pollination process whilst giving you the satisfaction of doing your part to help the environment.
At Honey House, we work to protect our local pollinators through colony growth and ethical beekeeping practices. Our tiny heroes are under threat worldwide mainly from intensive farming, habitat loss, improper use of pesticides, and climate change.
We are playing an active part in helping reverse the decline of the honeybee whilst showcasing the health and taste benefits of raw, South African, artisan honey.”

BARN YARD STABLES.
Amber Wolf Studios has donated the design, development and hosting of a local animal clinic and education center’s website as well as monthly contributions towards medical supplies for this amazing cause. We wanted to bring additional awareness to their great cause through this digital platform.
“Barn Yard Stables has been helping horses in need in Mthatha, Transkei, South Africa since 2000. A record of each animal is kept so it’s progress can be monitored by Barn Yard Stables. Janine is well known in her area, and often horse riders come from afar to bring their horses, donkeys and dogs to be seen by her. Often they are so ill or injured that they are brought it shopping trolleys or wheelbarrows.”

GIVING IS LIVING
Amber Wolf Studios has helped the local cause, Giving is Living, by donating EIGHT KENNELS to underprivileged communities in Cape Town.
“In many impoverished settlements and townships in South Africa, dogs are suffering in extreme weather conditions. Many of these dogs do not have any access to shelter and are exposed to all the elements mother nature has to offer. With Summer temperatures reaching highs of 38 degrees many animals do not have access to shade or shelter and are often left with severe sunburn, heatstroke and dehydration.”
“The Giving is Living Initiative serves to collect donations, monetary or otherwise, to distribute to the many animal charities in South Africa – focussing on the ones that are in the most amount of need.”

Amber Wolf Studios will be sponsoring Zoe until she is adopted!
“Zoe is one in a million all time amazing girl with love for days to give, she adores people…. Big and small. Has love for days to give a family. But like her Mom Nala she will need to be an only dog. She gets super reactive when dogs walk past her kennel or near her. Being really still a silly puppy she’s got all that puppy energy and is like a little energizer bunny, will play for ages. You can take her for nice long walks and she’ll come back pooped, but a 5 minute ‘down’ time is all she needs and she’s rearing to go again.”
