In a deal brokered by Moxie & Company, the Wildlife Trafficking Alliance (WTA), a program of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums and Rauch Industries, makers of Christopher Radko ornaments, have announced a two-year partnership to combat wildlife trafficking around the world with a tiger-themed Christmas ornament.  

“There are few things as recognizable on a holiday tree as a Christopher Radko glass ornament,” says Sara Walker, senior advisor on wildlife trafficking, Association of Zoos and Aquariums. “They spark conversation as soon as they come out of their box. Our partnership not only provides a beautiful ornament to consumers but also gives them a direct way to help combat the senseless trafficking of tigers. We are very excited to be working with such an iconic brand!”  

Made from blown glass, the new ornament, titled, “The Coolest Cats,” features a hand-painted tiger and cub. A percentage of sales from the ornament will benefit the WTA’s global initiatives to combat tiger trafficking.


“We are thrilled to start this incredible partnership with the Wildlife Trafficking Alliance and to have the opportunity to help protect these beautiful animals,” says Heather Shepardson, chief executive officer, Christopher Radko/Rauch Brands. “We cannot wait to see the success of this piece and the large impact that it will have on helping combat trafficking of tigers.”  

“We were pleased to be able to put together this collaboration between the Wildlife Tracking Alliance and Christopher Radko,” says Arlene Scanlan, founding partner, Moxie & Co. “Anything we can do to help the mission to stop the trafficking of these beautiful animals.”
