Today is World Wildlife Day and to celebrate we are styling endangered animals from around the world. Here at Wolven, we take protecting our Earth very seriously and strive to make our world a better place. Not only are all our active sets and bathing suits composed of recycled water bottles, but we also partner with a variety of organizations across the globe to participate in carbon offset measures. Check out our 2023 Impact Report for more information on how we are helping to save the planet.

For World Wildlife Day we thought it would be cool to envision currently endangered animals in Wolven. We matched each animal with a print or color that we felt represented their unique vibe.


Blue Whale

The blue whale is the largest mammal on Earth weighing in at over 200 tons. The blue whale can be found in all the oceans on Earth, with the exception of the Arctic. Whales are at the top of the marine food chain and play a major role in ocean regulation. They even help to offset CO2 by just going through their natural life cycle (they capture carbon through in their bodies which is then stored in their bodies when they die). Whales are known for being peaceful and serene, which is why we chose to style the blue whale in our Juniper color. This gorgeous periwinkle blue hue definitely gives us ocean vibes and brings us a sense of calm. 




The lion has been classified as a vulnerable species since 2008. Today lions inhabit only about 8% of their natural range, which has been largely decimated due to climate change and human land-use. When we think of the lion we think of power and pride. The lion symbolizes strength and ferocity, which is why we paired the lion with our Turmeric color. We love this bold tone and think it truly represents the lion’s fierce spirit. 



Polar Bear

The polar bear is the largest and most aggressive of the bears. Living in frozen climates, polar bears rely on ice sheets for hunting and resting. The melting ice due to climate change is posing a major threat to the livelihoods of polar bears, causing polar bears to retreat into human habitats. We styled the polar bear in our Harmony print, which gives us chilly winter vibes. Also, polar bears have blue tongues, so we thought the pops of blue color in Harmony would be perfect. 



Amur Leopard

The Amur leopard, which lives in Far Eastern Russia, is classified as critically endangered. This majestic leopard can run up to speeds of 37 mph and can jump 10 feet into the air. Unfortunately, this leopard is poached for its beautiful fur and sold in the illegal wildlife trade. Leopards are known to be illusive, rare and mysterious which is why we paired it with our Noor print. This print is dark, yet striking at the same time, just like a leopard.



Pacific Salmon

There are five species of salmon that live in the North Pacific waters of the US and Canada: chinook, coho, pink, sockeye, and chum salmon. Salmon play an important role in the lives of indigenous people, both culturally and as a food source, and are also a major food source for wild animals, such as bears and eagles. Pacific salmon are facing threats due to illegal harvesting, human land-use, development of mines, unregulated overharvesting and a rapidly changing climate. Salmon are known for their bright pink flesh, which is why we picked our Amalfi print to represent this iconic fish. 




The cuddly and cute koala was officially declared endangered in 2022 after years of habitat loss due to drought, wildfires and human land-use has significantly reduced their habitat. It is predicted that koalas will be completely extinct by 2050 without urgent government action. Despite common myth, koalas are not actually bears, but are marsupials and have back-ward facing pouches. The main food source for koalas is eucalyptus leaves, which is why we had to style the koala in our Eucalyptus color. This hue definitely gives us Australian rainforest and is the perfect match for the adorable koala.
