HEAR what’s so special about WATER BUFFALO and learn why Tropical Living will buy a water buffalo on your behalf for a family in need. Time to Listen: 1:24 minutes. (We’ve included the sounds of a friendly water buffalo for you to enjoy.)


Water Buffalo — A water buffalo named Roscoe

With a water buffalo, farm families in countries like Indonesia and Cambodia can increase crop production as much as fourfold. These mighty draft animals help plow fields without the pollution and expense of motorized equipment, and their manure can be used as fertilizer. Water buffalos also provide nutritious milk for families to drink, share with neighbors and sell for extra income. The protein in their milk can transform sick, malnourished children into healthy boys and girls. The sale of surplus milk helps families earn money for school fees, medicine, clothing and home improvements. In Thailand, water buffalos are widely — and affectionately — known as “the farmers’ friend.” “Passing on the Gift” means the recipients agree to share the offspring of donated animals with others in need, who in turn agree to pass on an animal, creating a chain of income and self-reliance that keeps on giving.


Tropical Living says “Thank You” with Heifer International


As Tropical Living's way of saying “thank you", whenever you buy an island, rent one of our properties for a week or longer, or buy one of our homeware collections, Tropical Living will purchase a livestock animal from Heifer International on your behalf for a family in need. Heifer International is a non-profit community development organization whose goal for over 60 years has been to help end world hunger and poverty through self-reliance and sustainability. They have a simple but powerful vision: that a gift of livestock and training can transform the lives of impoverished families. They help by teaching people how to produce food and income for themselves using donated animals. Heifer also helps communities flourish through small loans and enterprise planning and has helped more than seven million families lift themselves from poverty to self-reliance, providing hope for the future for hungry families all over the world.


Thank you, from Tropical Living.
