12 outfits for 12 months to save 12 endangered animals!
Gabby Wild, a thrill-seeking animal activist and aspiring veterinarian, is working to protect, save, and heal animals through creative fundraising campaigns, like the 12 in 12 for 12 campaign. In this campaign, Gabby takes on a different kind of jungle: the fashion jungle! She partnered with several Project Runway designers to create the animal-inspired outfits she wears for an entire month to raise awareness for an endangered animal. For Gabby, the wild outfits are a perk but her real love is for endangered species.
She was inspired by her work at an animal hospital in South Thailand where she took care of a baby elephant. That experience changed her life and she began to dedicate herself to saving species like the Asian Elephant from extinction. Although she's been called crazy, she says that the campaign is incredibly rewarding:
" People are proud of the initiative. They thing it is creative and crazy but it has been so great raising awareness for this serious issue."
