Habitat ID is an international wildlife organization.
Habitat ID’s mission is to discover areas where abandoned wildlife still hangs on, to attract the attention and commitment of governments and conservation organizations, and to ensure that wildlife receives adequate protection, before it disappears forever.
Habitat ID aims to offer conclusive evidence that notable wildlife remains in areas where its existence is being ignored, and to provide this field data to governments and conservation groups. We intend to lead the fight in protecting this planet’s last tropical wilderness areas, and to provide much-needed field support for the fragile network of park systems taking hold around the world to protect our most fascinating, unique and beautiful creatures.

Maserati swag bags with Habitat ID tee shirts and Maserati hats were handed out to event goers. Cocktails, beer, and wine were available. The pastry by Chef Martinez was over the top delicious.
The Near North area was crowded on such a nice afternoon. People stopped in to look at the exotic cars and learn about a worthwhile charity.
Rush Street is called the "Street of Dreams". It is a place where good things happen. Even charities have dreams.
