It’s Endangered Species Day!

Three species of tapir are endangered; one species, which we know little about, is vulnerable to extinction.
Baby tapirs are super cute! This is a baby Malaysian tapir. There are four species of tapir. Three are endangered; one species, which we know little about, is vulnerable.

Today is Endangered Species Day! There are amazing animals and plants in danger of going extinct all over the world–probably even in your own state. Here in Washington, animals in danger of extinction include Western pond turtles, grouse, and super cute pygmy rabbits. Like many animals around the world, the main threat to these critters is habitat destruction. We humans are bulldozing and paving, pumping oil and gas, spilling chemicals, cutting down trees and vegetation, introducing invasive species, and heating up their climates.

The best way to protect many species is to protect their habitats!

Thanks, Rose City Comic Con!

Rose City Comic Con 2015

Thanks to everyone who came and visited our booth at Rose City Comic Con last weekend! Our first NerdyCute booth was a blast. We enjoyed meeting fellow vendors and attendees and hope to see you again soon!

We’ve made a few updates to the store and have reordered stickers. If there was something you wanted to buy at the Con but couldn’t because our credit card reader was down (sadness!), feel free to email Fred and she’ll see what we can do about waiving shipping.

We spent today reading every single survey and comment from the con – look for some new designs and offerings (buttons! shirts! more charms!) soon 🙂

Our first issue of FunClub will be going out the first week of October. We hope you’ll enjoy it!

<3 Fred & Lena
