DEERDANA x Animalia Polymita Snails Collection
About the Collection and the Polymita Snail
Polymita Snails are indigenous to Cuba and known for their trademark beautiful shells. Unfortunately, this beauty is also why they are heavily collected and killed and turned into necklaces and art outside of Cuba. Things like habitat loss, climate change, and invasive species are also killing them. Polymita populations are down as much as 98% in critical areas. This is a problem - they serve a critical role in helping trees by eating fungi and serve as food for other species!
33% of the proceeds from this collection are in support of Polymita conservation. This includes critical research, educating locals, and expanding the team. Stand up for Polymitas, they need our help and support!
