Conservation and Illustration- A Portfolio.
An archive of illustrations that I have been working on since August 2018. Most of my work focuses primarily on endangered species. My aim is to raise awareness through the illustrations- some are used by specific charities for fundraising purposes.
SAVE THE PANGOLINS
Pangolins are the worlds only truly scaled mammal, are capable of curling up into a ball, and have a tongue that is the length of their entire body!
They are also the world's most illegally trafficked animal.
Unfortunately, their scales are often used in traditional medicine, and their meat is considered a culinary delicacy. it is estimated that since 2000, 1 million Pangolins have been traded illegally.1
There are 8 species of Pangolin, and the 4 Asian subspecies are critically endangered.
This illustration is used exclusively to raise funds for savepangolins.com
WHITE HEADED VULTURE
Rated as Critically endangered by the ICUN, the White Headed Vulture, there are an estimated 2,500-9,999 individuals left in the world.
The White Headed Vulture is threatened by habitat degradation in the form of agriculture, and are often the victims of trapping and discrimination.
Vultures- or nature's 'clean up team'- are incredibly important to the ecological health of many ecosystems.
