In past years, we have also sold the name of a gorgeous bark beetle for $10,000.

Be the first in your neighborhood to have a legacy gift this holiday season — name a species after your beloved spouse, favorite charity, or upcoming graduate! And by doing this, you will help save the forests of Ethiopia — all auction funds will go towards the construction of local stone walls to conserve the last remaining forest fragments in northern Ethiopia, otherwise known as church forests!
