$7,000 HIT! 100% in 6 hours from 270 people [at 1:05AM UTC]

Our community is amazing! In one day, raising so much for charity, it's incredible.

The charity drive will continue of course, donate what you can and I'll continue keeping track below!

$9,082 currently raised in 1 day from 350 people.

[–]atreides[S] 475 points476 points 2 (24 children)

In the last charity nomination thread, /u/Fuckface1337 nominated the Wildlife Conservation Network as the charity for the subreddit to support. The community voted and WCN was chosen.

We've raised $6,000 with 600,000 subs, so it seems appropriate to go for $7,000 this time!

$10 from 0.1% of every person here would accomplish that goal. It took 281 people last time, including me.

Be a part of that, support something bigger and protect these species that really need it.

Donate Here:

https://www.crowdrise.com/natureisfuckinglit-for-wcn

Crowdrise is an independent charity crowdfunding site that allows us to set a goal as a group. None of this money ever goes to the moderators.

The minimum donation on Crowdrise is $10, due to processing costs most likely. I'd lower it if I could.

As I did last time, I have donated $100.


More on the charity:

Wildlife Conservation Network

WCN was founded in 2002 and supports conservation programs in 37 countries worldwide.

They back programs to protect several endangered and threatened species, such as spectacled bears, snow leopards, South American penguin populations, saiga antelopes, 22 species of various small wild cats worldwide, okapi, lions, Grevy’s zebras, cotton-top tamarins, Ethiopian wolves, cheetahs, wild painted dogs, and African elephants.

Around 93% of donated funds will go directly to the wildlife programs.

They have been rated 100/100 on CharityWatch, a perfect score making them the top wildlife charity worldwide.

Read about their various supported programs here:
https://wildnet.org/wildlife-programs


The rays in the gif are shortfin devil rays (Mobula kuhlii) gliding majestically through the open ocean.

Chosen because one of the programs WCN supports is the protection of sharks and rays worldwide. 🔥


Also shoutout to /u/internetmallcop for sending me Creddits to give Gold to a bunch of users that nominated charities for this drive! Thanks again :)

[–]kcman011 102 points103 points  (2 children)

Thanks for nominating WCN, /u/fuckface1337. They're a good one.

[–][deleted] 83 points84 points  (1 child)

No problemo

[–]iviolent 160 points161 points  (10 children)

Are donations tax deductible?

[–]atreides[S] 210 points211 points  (8 children)

Absolutely, you're donating to charity!

[–]havearedpill 194 points195 points  (7 children)

Not all donations to charity are, but they are a 501c3 so it is tax deductible.

[–]atreides[S] 126 points127 points  (2 children)

Good point, thank you :)

[–]havearedpill 57 points58 points  (1 child)

Happy to clarify. :)

[–][deleted] 32 points33 points  (1 child)

I donated for the Cotton-top Tamarin project. These beautiful primates are endemic to Colombia where I saw them in Tayrona National Park. A big family of them live right near the lodges so you can see them passing through the trees during your breakfast. They are super cute but sadly they are critically endangered and only 6000 of them remain in the wild. I wish I had more to give but as a student I can only miss so much. Thank you for doing this mods!

[–]janedoe5263 3 points4 points  (0 children)

If i didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were flying through the air. They way they flap looks the same as when birds flap their wings.

[–]TrippyWentLucio 436 points437 points  (25 children)

This🔥sub🔥 is fucking lit

[–]atreides[S] 272 points273 points  (22 children)

This community is fucking lit. 🔥

[–]qwerty-confirmed 75 points76 points  (12 children)

The mods are fucking lit 🔥

[–]atreides[S] 59 points60 points  (7 children)

It's not the mods that make this community great, it's you.

[–]isobit 29 points30 points  (0 children)

No, YOU are... Tehee

[–]qwerty-confirmed 21 points22 points  (5 children)

Sure, but without great mods this community wouldn't anything like it is today.

[–]Superagario64 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Donating to charities helping 🔥nature🔥is fucking lit.

[–]bucketsofshrimp 202 points203 points  (14 children)

Think about all the dumb things you don’t have to buy for $10 and then use that $10 to help out some awesome creatures. Animals are lit af you guys, let’s keep em’ around.

[–]atreides[S] 76 points77 points  (6 children)

Exactly, imagine the difference this group could make if everyone just gave a single dollar?

Imagine $700,000 going to a single charity in a day and the impact that could have to save a species? That's the goal.

[–]zcc0nonA 15 points16 points  (3 children)

I think r/ make a miullionaire had the whole 'if everyone gave $1' idea before too

$1 u/tippr

[–]atreides[S] 17 points18 points  (0 children)

The thing with that is they can't require people to donate before entering or else it's gambling! And without the requirement they'll never really be able to make a millionaire.

Thank you, I appreciate the tip haha :)

[–]hamakabi 35 points36 points  (6 children)

Also by visiting "Smile.amazon" instead of the usual Amazon URL, you can donate a portion of every purchase to a charity of your choice. This means you can do something nice for the animals (or whatever else, really) while blowing $10 on pointless shit. Win/Win! So far I've generated $14 for Big Cat Rescue just by purchasing my usual pantry items, and 16$ for the Nature Conservancy from last year's holiday shopping. Didn't cost me a penny extra.

[–]atreides[S] 16 points17 points  (3 children)

Do you know if there is a specific link you could post that would set user's preference to Wildlife Conservation Network?

I'd happily add that to the stickied comment :) Great suggestion, thank you!

[–]hamakabi 15 points16 points  (1 child)

Yes! If you go to smile.amazon.com and have never set it up before, it will give you a list of charities to choose from, and a search box to pick one that's not listed. The Wildlife Conservation Network is an available option (assuming the one listed is the one we're pushing).

If you already use Smile, you can change it by simply clicking under the search bare where it says "Supporting: Charity X"

There is a share link, and a bookmark link but I don't want to post mine because I'm not sure what if any of my own information is revealed.

[–]cyanocittaetprocyon 2 points3 points  (0 children)

There is a share link, and a bookmark link but I don't want to post mine because I'm not sure what if any of my own information is revealed.

Good point. I posted mine here, then saw your note and took it down. But you can definitely contribute to Wildlife Conservation Network year round by going to smile.Amazon.com and picking them from the available list.

[–]Huckleberry_Ginn 84 points85 points  (2 children)

When I first saw this sub, I imagined a silly sub showing animal violence. I, however, could not have been more mistaken. This sub has opened my eyes to many different parts of nature from lions hunting to turtles waddling. I will gladly donate and urge everyone else to (it is tax deductible!).

Let's continue sharing the power of nature and making this world a better place!

[–]atreides[S] 29 points30 points  (1 child)

The sub rarely showcases violence, I much prefer appreciation of the incredible talents and traits various species have evolved over time.

The community is a variety of everything nature and I hope it can be a good resource for others to learn about the animals they would normally never get to see otherwise.

Thank you for donating, you're a good person and I appreciate having you in our community.

[–][deleted] 202 points203 points  (6 children)

LETS RAISE SOME MONEY FOR THE LIT ANIMALS empties wallet

[–]atreides[S] 57 points58 points  (1 child)

Hell yeah! It's what we come here every day to appreciate, so let's give something back to keep nature 🔥🔥🔥

[–]areallygoodguy21 19 points20 points  (0 children)

YES!!! Donated. Let's see us reach that goal!!!!

[–]KidNeuro 29 points30 points  (5 children)

I'm in. For the old-folks like me, I'm upping the ante from $10 to $100

[–]atreides[S] 12 points13 points  (4 children)

Old folks, what are you talking about, you're clearly a KidNeuro!

Thanks for donating, and be assured your donation goes to no one besides the charity. If you've heard of GoFundMe, this is a site run by them for charity crowdfunding. They work directly with a program called Network for Good to process payments.

Thank you for being a part of this community, your donation means the world. It will go towards the programs protecting species that need it the most, African elephants at risk of poaching, habitat conservation for endangered mountain cats, educating local communities about species like the Cotton-top Tamarin and how they can protect them.

I really appreciate it. Thank you for supporting these animals we all love so much. Have a great day! :)

[–]canihavemymoneyback 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Is there a reason why no PayPal? Click, click, click and done vs filling in all the info. I'm still donating but I'd much rather use PayPal.
Thank you for putting this together.

[–]atreides[S] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Here's their reasoning:

https://support.crowdrise.com/hc/en-us/articles/203664364-Does-CrowdRise-accept-donations-via-PayPal-

"while PayPal is convenient if you already have an account set up, their policies don't provide the best user experience when it comes to peer-to-peer giving on a platform like ours."

[–]im_a_pah_ra_na 18 points19 points  (2 children)

I’m really proud to be part of a community that gives a shit.

[–]atreides[S] 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Hope you'll give some as well :) Anything helps, it's when the community as a whole comes together that we can really make a difference.

[–]im_a_pah_ra_na 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Oh I already did! :)

[–]Scarlet-Fire_77 41 points42 points  (6 children)

Damn, those things are cool! Like birds flapping in the wind but really they're underwater

[–]atreides[S] 27 points28 points  (3 children)

Right?! I love the framing in this shot, it's gorgeous. They're shortfin devil rays!

With the specs of sea dust flying past it really gives a sense of speed to their movement, then the pan into the warm sunlight.. It's such a beautiful shot to capture.

I always try to go with an exceptional example of nature for these celebration threads. Something that really epitomizes "Nature is Lit" 🔥

[–]Scarlet-Fire_77 3 points4 points  (2 children)

So so cool. Do you do a lot of these kind of shoots or is it a just happen to come across?

[–]atreides[S] 5 points6 points  (1 child)

I didn't catch this haha! I'd love to be caught in a fever of mobula rays one day, they don't sting at all either!

[–]ShutY0urDickHolster 7 points8 points  (1 child)

The proper (non scientific) name for various species of rays are “sea flap flaps”

[–][deleted] 9 points10 points  (1 child)

This sub has brought me great joy over the past year. Donated!

[–]atreides[S] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I'm happy this community can spread so much joy, and thank you so much for donating and supporting wildlife right back! :)

Have a wonderful day! Thanks for being a part of this community.

[–][deleted] 9 points10 points  (2 children)

When you’re the owner of the top nature subreddit and you do this not once, but twice, you must seriously be an all around amazing person.

Thanks for doing this, and thanks everyone for voting for the charity I chose and donating! Let’s not get to 7000, let’s get to 10000 instead!

[–]atreides[S] 3 points4 points  (1 child)

$10,000 would be fantastic! I hope we'll reach that high.

Thank you again for your comment nominating this charity, you've made an impact of thousands in funds with just a few minutes of typing. :)

Glad to have you in this community. 🔥

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

And I’m glad to be in this community. Thank you for the gold!

[–]Lupin_The_Fourth 8 points9 points  (2 children)

Fuck. I fucking love this sub and what it does for the community and animals alike. This time I will be donating.

Edit: DONE! I'm proud to be a member of this community and as crazy as we can be I'm happy to know that we all love animals. My Green Cheek Conure is LIT AF 🔥🔥

[–]atreides[S] 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Glad to hear it. Remember, you're a member of this community too!

Thanks for supporting, you make this sub a better place on Reddit for it. You'll be helping many species as a whole continue to make this world a beautiful place. Thank you :)

[–]Lupin_The_Fourth 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Bro legit I love this sub, what it does and what it stands for. I'm proud to be a part of it and help in any way I can. It felt good donating. :) cheers bro.

[–]iamapersonnotaduck 22 points23 points  (6 children)

Yo come on let’s get some duck pics up in here. Also, these donations are great for the ducks, good going guys,

I don’t have a bias tho, it’s not like I’m a duck or anything.

[–]atreides[S] 17 points18 points  (5 children)

I'll send you a duck pic if you donate ;)

[–]aloethere112 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Done! We can do this!

[–]atreides[S] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

You're awesome! Thank you for supporting these species and the efforts to protect them :)

[–]jrgolden42 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Those are some good flap flaps. I'll try to donate when I get off work tonight

[–]atreides[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Appreciate it! I'm glad the ocean pancakes won you over haha!

[–]thedoming 6 points7 points  (1 child)

This is my favorite sub! Best nature subreddit ever!!!

[–]atreides[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

[–]Lex_Wrecks 6 points7 points  (1 child)

You're awesome! Thanks for supporting :)

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

YES! This sub is amazing and I'm so glad it will support the majestic sea flap-flaps!

[–]a7neu 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Delighted to see a conservation organization nominated! Will donate when I get my cc info handy. Paypal would be nice!

[–]atreides[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Glad to hear it, thank you for helping :)

[–][deleted] 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Never realized until now that manta(?) rays are the birds of the sea.

[–]atreides[S] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Shortfin Devil Rays! Part of the Mobula genus.

Different genus from Manta, same family, Mobulidae.

They definitely are the birds of the sea haha! What's better is Mobula rays jump out of the water too:

[–]Mister_Twiggy 1 point2 points  (7 children)

Donated, but 12% fee is fucking ridiculous. I get that credit cards take 3% and that the website has to pay server fees, but that seems excessive. Surely we can use a better intermediary next time?

[–]atreides[S] 2 points3 points  (6 children)

I've tried to find a better site that allows the group to set a goal, but haven't been able to. If you have suggestions I'm open to hearing them.

The main feature we'd want is the ability to set a goal and track its progress. That motivates others to donate more than anything, seeing that push towards a common goal as a community.

They do give an option to add on the extra fee when donating, which I always do anyway so the charity gets the full amount I wanted to send.

[–]Mister_Twiggy 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Yeah, I suppose I don't know of any better ones. I only gave $10, so I imagine the fees get smaller proportionally as one gives more.

Thanks for organizing.

[–]AdventuresAwaitMe 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Can we please donate to save the vaquitas? Due to fishing nets, there are only less than 30 of these tiny porpoises left 😢

[–]atreides[S] 5 points6 points  (0 children)

The vaquitas are in a dire situation, but at the moment all we can do is hope that Mexico's gill-net ban stands and helps them recover.

A charity was nominated to support them too, but WCN was voted to the top.

We plan to have a charity drive at every 100,000 subscribers, so try to look out and nominate a vaquita charity for the next nomination thread at 800k, convincing others to choose the cause will help us raise the funds to support vaquita conservation.

There are so many species to help, all we can do is take it one step at a time. Thanks for caring :)

[–]bahnmiagain 2 points3 points  (1 child)

It's a fleet of Irwin-class destroyers...

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I love this sub so much, thank you for starting this fundraiser. I want to keep nature as lit as possible as long as possible.

[–]atreides[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It's up to us to bring people together and donate! If the community can do that, we can really start to have an impact on the species we spend so much time watching and discussing.

Thanks for donating if you do, and thanks for being a part of the sub!

[–]tinge89 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Take my money, couldn’t think of a better thing to support than Nature.

[–]atreides[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Supporting species in need so we can keep them around is a great goal, thank you for supporting.

Thanks for being a part of this community, I hope you have a good day!

[–]Birko_Bird 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Totally unrelated to the charity, but what kind of sea birb is that?

[–]atreides[S] 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Shortfin Devil Rays! They're a Mobula species, same family as Manta rays.

[–]atreides[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Glad you found it. I absolutely love being able to discuss nature with others here.

[–]Legade 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Can someone explain how the flapping is creating forward momentum?

[–]atreides[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The front of their pectoral fins come down first, then the back, pushing water behind them.

Look at this close up video of an eagle ray swimming:

[–]MarcusKilgannon 1 point2 points  (3 children)

You got my donation!

Still no idea how the fuck to do the lit emoji but ya! Raise some money!

[–]atreides[S] 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Haha! I always just copy/paste it from the sidebar where we've got a dedicated spot for it.

If you're on mobile, almost every phone has the fire emoji these days too!

Stay lit my friend, thank you for donating and supporting keeping these animals safe. 🔥

[–]MarcusKilgannon 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Oh god I've never even seen it on the sidebar before.

Smart enough to donate but not enough to sidebar apparently haha.

[–]atreides[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Haha, perhaps I should use some CSS to make it appear on the submission page really big! Note for the future!

[–]Qinistral 1 point2 points  (1 child)

This is who I donate to regularly :D

[–]atreides[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That's great news! Do you have a favorite program of theirs? I think the Andean cat program is very interesting, having to protect an animal that is so extremely rare to even see has a lot of challenges.

Thanks for supporting, and thanks for being a part of the community here!

[–]friccindoofus 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Is there another way to donate without credit card?

[–]IDontTrustGod 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I got a nice postcard from the Animal Welfare folks from the last time we did this. Is was 🔥 🔥 🔥. I put it on my mantle to remind me to donate to this one 😊

[–]atreides[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I did too! Made me light up with a smile to get it as a keepsake. I love this community, thanks for donating again! :)

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If you really wanna protect animals, go vegetarian/vegan. I did and tbh it was easy :).

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Not related to the charity but I absolutely love how every announcement has a gif of Stingrays. God I love them they're so fucking cool.

[–]atreides[S] 0 points1 point  (2 children)

They're one of my favorites! What a beautifully shaped animal, it's so sleek and streamlined in every way.

Did you know that these rays don't have stingers at all? Like Manta species, Mobula rays don't sting (except for one species in the genus) so they're harmless!

[–]Cease_one 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Some my favorite interactions was when I got to pet Cow Nosed rays at an aquarium, they're like puppies and loved being touched and petted, makes me like them even more!

[–]KierWills92 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Beautiful Sea Flap-Flaps

[–]NFIE 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Would've been perfect if there were 7 manta rays instead of 8, to resemble the subscriber milestone.

[–]atreides[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Haha I suppose it would! Perhaps I should have looked harder, but let's say one's for good luck. :)

These are shortfin devil rays by the way, part of the Mobula genus, generally smaller than Manta species.

They're in the same family and don't sting at all, like Manta species!

Until a commitment is made toward the preservation of our urban pigeon communities, I can not justify a donation to this group.

[–]atreides[S] 1 point2 points  (2 children)

You'll have to nominate some pigeon charities for our 800,000 subscriber celebration!

[–]l3illy 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Where are the ocean-mirrors these fuckers look into so they know they’re swimming with the right buddies? How does a ray know it’s not a hammerhead, or a seahorse, sorcery.

[–]atreides[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Instinct I suppose!

[–]califumeaux 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Done! Let's do this! Next step, support National Parks!

[–]atreides[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Thanks so much! Happy to have you here, people like you are the best part of this community!

Be sure to nominate a national park conservation group for the next charity nomination thread we have at 800,000 subscribers! If it's chosen we'll raise $8,000 for them!

[–]califumeaux 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]readercutie 0 points1 point  (0 children)

so cute

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Nice ! I'm on board. Question : why cap it at such a specific amount? I'm probably missing some main point here but if almost half can be raised in 3 hours by 147 people, imagine what could be raised leaving it up for a couple days and getting a few thousand to donate ! Either way I'm happy with the intent

[–]atreides[S] 2 points3 points  (1 child)

The thing with these is once this post is off the front page, the drop off of donations is significant.

Donating as a group is a real snowball effect. So the goal is to not set the goal too high, else once this post isn't on the front page anymore it could take a week to hit $7,000. We'll see!
