So you know how there aren’t as many members of some species as there once was, and in fact some species that used to exist no longer exist? Well, some folks still haven’t gotten the message.
In an attempt to bring more recognition (and funding) to the conservation cause, some mighty fine Zartists are collaborating on the Endangered Species Print Project. The project houses artwork that depicts endangered animals, but the print-run of each species’ piece is limited to the number of individuals thought to still exist. For instance, a Zooillogix favorite: The Vancouver Island Marmot.
… there will only be 140 prints available.
In addition to the nature-geek eye candy, viewers of the artwork are can read information about the species’ present status, habitat, threats to their survival, zodiac sign, and thoughts on the dwindling economy.
Each print purchase supports a conservation effort specific to that species. The above print benefits The Marmot Recovery Foundation (I wish I owned that domain name, marmots.org, so bad), and was created by Molly Schafer.
