January 25, 2022, Orlando, Fla. The Miss Earth USA organization announces successful fundraising and marketing efforts with three wildlife conservation partners. Ambassadors for the pageant raised awareness and funding for these causes throughout the fall, leading up to the national pageant that took place on January 8 in Orlando.

On January 6, over 100 guests gathered at the Rosen Centre Hotel in Orlando to support wildlife conservation efforts during the official Beauties for a Cause USA charity gala. The event was hosted by 2020 Miss Earth Lindsey Coffey. Attendees were encouraged to wear animal theme formalwear. Additionally, over twenty Beauties for a Cause scholarship finalists were recognized at the charity gala and nearly $15,000 in scholarships were awarded thanks to independent fundraising and corporate contributions.

During the week, ambassadors visited two of the organizations that are being supported through these efforts Click the links below to read more about the partnerships.

Save the Manatee - Miss Earth 2021 Destiny Wagner of Belize joined our two most recent USA national ambassadors Lindsey Coffey and Marisa Paige Butler during a manatee sighting kayaking excursion at Blue Spring Park, Florida. B4AC USA has contributed approximately $1,000 to Save the Manatee through the adoption of manatees on behalf of Destiny, Marisa and Lindsey.

Central Florida Animal Reserve - The CFAR is a big cat and wildlife sanctuary near Orlando, housing lions, tigers, leopards, and cougars that would otherwise not have a home. National titleholders Meredith Pope, Katia Gerry and Marisa Butler toured the CFAR to witness the splendor of the cats being supported. B4AC USA has contributed $1,000 and will continue to send ambassadors to the reserve for volunteer efforts throughout the year.

Seal Society of San Diego - Each year, Miss Earth USA ambassadors have the opportunity to attend a summer mission trip. This year's mission will again visit Seal Beach in San Diego, California, where attendees will see the seals and learn more about the Sierra Club's conservation efforts to protect them. B4AC USA will contribute $1,000 to the Seal Society and volunteer on their behalf during the mission.

The Miss Earth USA organization is proud to offer these conservation efforts to all state and national ambassadors, showing that pageantry really is more than beauty. Participants represent the Beauties for a Cause mission in their home communities as well as national campaign efforts.
