Headquartered in Indianapolis, Indiana; Endangered Species Chocolate (ESC) was founded in 1993 by an Oregon entrepreneur who had two passions—crafting premium chocolate and conservation. Since 2016, ESC has donated over $2.6 million to its Give Back Partners who focus on wildlife conservation. Xerces has been honored to be one of those partners, and ESC has not only supported us financially, but also as an advocate for conserving endangered species, including featuring the rusty-patched bumble bee on one of their bars and helping us get the word out about the threats fireflies face by featuring our program on their #MidfulMondays social media campaign. Their partnership has been truly transformative.
