The Calendars

In 2018, I started illustrating one endangered species per month, to complete total of 12 illustrations for a non-for-profit calendar that I designed and printed. My goal was to raise awareness for these wonderful creatures, by showing everyone their beauty. In total we raised over 1000$, donated to various conservation groups that strive to further help these animals and therefore our ecosystem. 

Currently in 2020, I am working on yet another series of illustration, that not only capture the endangered species, but also their vulnerable environments. I hope to bring to the public in the fall. Stay tuned!

Endangered Species 2019

This is the KAKAPO, the world’s only flightless owl parrot, whose entire small population live on islands of New Zealand. They are Critically Endangered due to human hunting and deforestation around early 19th century, it wasn’t until late in the century that the problem was finally beginning to be recognized. There is only about 151 of them currently in the world and they don’t mate very often, unless of course Stephen Fry is present. (Google this ;))

ASIAN ELEPHANTS are listed as endangered species and their habitat is shrinking fast in this day and age. Do not support camps that allow the poor treatment of elephants when you visit Asian countries. Considered reading more about them at WWF and Mahouts, and if you want have to see some (I don’t disagree with you, you SHOULD. They are so majestic they have moved me to tears), consider visiting sanctuaries such as Kindered Spirits , BEESBLES.

MALAYAN TIGER can only be found in Malaysia and Thailand’s southern tip. Dense tropical forests and areas close to rivers is where they most like to inhabit. Only about 250-340 of them left in the wild, they are considered critically endangered. Their strips are thinner compared to those of other tiger and are great camouflagers.

Keeping the populations of wild boars under control is just one of the reasons they are valuable to humans. They also like to eat deer, cattle and goats. Like other subspecies of tiger, their hunting style is stealthy and quick to kill. They can run up to 96km/h! Their coats are pretty but let’s leave it on them and not as hunting trophies.

SUNDA PANGOLIN is one of 8 species of pangolin, and these little guys are from Southeast Asia. Sunda Pangolin or Malayan Pangolin prefer forests and may burrow in trees like this one. Their unique scales, (which are made out of same protein as our hair and nails!) are great protection for them when they are feasting on ant colonies. Other than their large, curved claws, their super long tongue and super sticky saliva are great for digging into those trees and log to find their meal.

HAWKSBILL SEA TURTLES are so god damned beautiful. The fact that they are Critically Endangered makes me super sad. Especially the fact that one of their biggest thread is wildlife trading. I am no scientist, so I would refer you to the big wide world of internet to learn more about them and the WWF for more ways of how we can help. Look at these 5 simple things we can do to help.

COQUEREL’S SIFAKA is a type of lemur that can only be found in Madagascar. They are vegetarian creatures (like me!) that love eating leaves, but also like fruits, flowers, bark and deadwood sometimes. They can leap as high as 30 feet thanks to their powerful legs. Classified as endangered species, these Sifaks’ biggest threat is habitat lost from farming expansions, habitat fragmentation and hunting threats.

OKAPI is one of the most beautiful and elusive animal species that was brought to the Western world’s knowledge in 1901. Appearing to be a mix between a giraffe, zebra and a horse, they are also known as the Forest Giraffe, or Zebra Giraffe. Their closest relative is the giraffe and the only surviving members of the Giraffidae family. One interesting fact about these amazing animals, is that they were known in ancient Egypt! Carved images were found by excavators of the okapis.

AFRICAN WILD DOG also called “Cape hunting dog or painted dog” likes to roam the open plains of Africa. They live in packs and are usually lead by one monogamous breeding couple. As very social pack animals, they like to share food, and help the ill and weak out. One of the ways they communicate is through adorable little sneezes! It is used to vote on when to move on to the next hunt. 

This adorably freckled little bovine is called SAOLA, or Asian Unicorn, is a rarely seen creature since its discoveries two decades ago. It was then one of the first large mammal discovered in more than 50 years . None in captivity and only maybe few hundred or few dozen of them in the wild. Their horns can grow up to 20inches for both male and female. Cousins to cattle but most resemble an antelope. 

WHOOPING CRANE is the tallest bird in North America, and it got its name from the whooping sound their wings make when they flap. There were only about 22 of these majestic creatures left in 1942 and now there are about 280 birds and increasing due to conservation efforts. You can watch and learn about it here and here!! There are puppet cranes and pilots involved! How cool is that?!

AMUR LEOPARD is a rare subspecies of leopards that live in northern regions. Therefore their coat is usually paler compared to their other leopard siblings and have larger and more spaced out rosettes. The coat can grow up to 7.5cm in the winter and is soft and dense. Currently they are listed as critically endangered and there were less than 60 of them in the wild in 2016.

BLUE WHALE, one of the largest creatures ever known to roam the Earth and yet it dwarfs in size compared to its ancestors. It is crazy to think their diet really consist of tiny krills, and a day’s worth of them roughly weighs 4 tons. These heavy weight champs themselves weight about 200 tons, that is about 33 elephants!

Even though they are at the top of the food chain, heavy whaling before 1966, ship injuries and toxins in the ocean are among the top causes of its’ threatened population on top of climate change.
