Maya Higa Facts

  1. Maya took to streaming content on Twitch as late as February 2019 but her channel witnessed robust growth after a falconry video of hers with a juvenile red-tailed hawk went viral on Reddit. In May 2019, to celebrate her 21st birthday, she had held a charity stream for a local homeless coalition that she used to volunteer for. Her stream had raised funds amounting to USD 32k.
  2. In July 2019, she began hosting a weekly conversation broadcast on her Twitch channel known as the Conservation Cast, a podcast that was aimed to connect her audience with renowned conservationists, wildlife enthusiasts, and science communicators to build a sense of awareness and responsibility about wildlife conservation.
  3. The podcast has hosted spokespersons from conservation charities including Save the Rhino, the Exotic Feline Rescue Center, and the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund. The very first episode of the podcast had raised USD 3k for the American Eagle Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to inspiring people to guard and protect the Bald Eagle and other birds of prey.
  4. In February 2021, she had held a 21-hour charity stream in support of her newly founded exotic animal sanctuary known as Alveus Sanctuary. The stream had auctioned several items belonging to celebrities and once she had achieved her goal of raising USD 500k, she had shaved her head, a promise she had made a few weeks ago. The stream had raised USD 578k overall.
