These large gentle beings, often known locally in #jamaica 🇯🇲 as “sea cows” can weigh up to 1000 lbs! #manatees are passive mammals who live in shallow, slow-moving rivers, saltwater bays, canals, and coastal areas. They pose no threat to humans being #plantbased. They breath air, and so surface frequently, meaning that if manatees are nearby, it is likely you will spot a group of them called an AGGREGATION. Unfortunately, manatees and their habitats are under serious threat from ocean pollution and other human activities. It’s up to us to help protect these #peaceful beings and aid the recovery of their population and #habitats around the #world.

The Jaguar is the main predator in the Amazon jungle and one of the most recognizable big cats in the world. They help maintain prey populations and contribute to the overall health of the ecosystem. 🐆 🐆 In the past 100 years, the range of the Jaguar has decreased by 50% and their populations continue to decline. Humans threaten the jaguars through hunting, deforestation, killing prey species, and a growing demand for Jaguar parts has led to illegal poaching. The WWF has installed wildlife cameras in the forest and is working with local governments and other organizations to stabilize the Jaguar populations and habitat.
You have seen snapshots of this drawing before, but I have never actually posted the whole thing. The title of this piece is "Mummy, wake up". This little calf is due a midnight feed. But his mummy is asleep. Or is she? She's been like this for a while and she does not feel like her usual warm self... Initially this drawing was supposed to be much more drastic. Mummy rhino was to have her horn cut off, lying in a paddle of blood. But I decided against being too visual and left some of it to the viewers' imagination. This piece was inspired by a trip to the zoo in Berlin some 15 years ago, which was part of my post graduate degree in the Washington Convention CITES. For those not so familiar with this term, CITES regulates international trade in endangered species of wild fauna and flora, including trophies. The walls of one of the exhibition rooms at the zoo were covered by the most horrific photographs of poached rhinos - the sight I have never been able to forget... White rhinos currently have 'near threatened' conservation status, with some 20,000 southern white rhinos and only two northern white rhinos left in the world. Killing the mother is likely to kill the calf too. This rhino's mummy will not wake up again. Ever. . Piece available for sale. 10% will be donated to WWF (World Wide Fund for Nature).
