Our Ethics:

With everything we stock at The Weird & Wonderful we try to be as environmentally friendly as possible. 
We believe that taxidermy is an amazing way to educate people on animals that they have never seen, and possibly will never see up close. 
Preserving of the animals remains in this way preserves the beauty and the spirit of the animal. Where possible we stock
antique pieces, animals that have died a natural death or animals that have died from traffic accidents.
We DO NOT promote poaching and we regularly donate to the WWF to help preserve the natural environment of these beautiful creatures.
