In honor of our Erumpent Rescue campaign, we want to introduce you to the magical creatures that the campaign is all for.
Our magical creature in the Wizarding World is the Erumpent. The erumpent is a “medium-sized” beast with a thick, rope-like tail, grey skin, and a sharp horn on its nose. It is prized among some witches and wizards for the magical properties of its tail and horn, so unfortunately erumpents are hunted and killed legally. In the muggle world, the erumpent finds its counterpart in the rhinoceros, a being which similarly is grey-skinned and has one or two horns, but which differs in size and is in fact illegal to kill and trade parts of.

The Fwooper Foundation is now the Fantastic Beasts Foundation
The following post is from the Fantastic Beasts Foundation's executive director and creator, Tylor Starr.
On this day, May 30th, 24 years ago, Harry Potter used his own sock to free another being from a life of inhumane servitude. That being was Dobby, the house-elf, and he went on to become one the bravest creatures in the entire Harry Potter series. Without Dobby, Harry would never have been able to survive the second task in the Triwizard Tournament. Without Dobby, Luna Lovegood, Mr. Olivander, Griphook, Ron, Harry, and Hermione would not have been able to escape from Malfoy Manor. Dobby, who was treated like vermin just because of his species, went on to save so many--just because he was shown a little compassion.
In honor of such a brave and strong creature, we are announcing that the Fwooper Foundation is now going to be the Fantastic Beasts Foundation!
For our newest edition of Recipes from the Hogwarts Kitchen, we are going to share with you a super-simple, frothy-and-delicious recipe for everyone’s favorite beverage: butterbeer.
Like the last recipe, this one uses ingredients that have no animal products in them, from the cream soda to the butter. Did you know that most cream sodas are acidentally vegan? Only a couple brands aren’t, but you can easily check the labels to ensure there is no milk or honey.
If you’re like us here at the Fantastic Beasts Foundation, you’ve probably dreamed of riding the Hogwarts Express to Hogwarts and sampling some of the delicious food sold by the Trolley witch. Unfortunately, we are still waiting for our letter to Hogwarts to arrive (when is that darn thing going to get here?!), so for the time being we have come up with a recipe that will satisfy your Honeydukes-dreams while also utilizing ingredients that are kind to animals!
