Information: The Florida panther (Puma concolor coryi) is a critically endangered subspecies of Puma that lives in the low pinelands, palm forests and swamps of southern Florida in the United States, especially near the Big Cypress National Preserve. This panther, the only Puma representative in the eastern United States, currently occupies only 5% of its historic range. There are fewer than 80 breeding individuals. (found here)

Aye-aye (Daubentonia madagascariensis)


Read more...Collapse )

Information: (wikipedia) The Aye-aye is a primate native to Madagascar that combines rodent-like teeth with a long, thin middle finger to fill the same ecological niche of a woodpecker. It is the world's largest nocturnal primate, and is characterized by its unique method of finding food; it taps on trees to find grubs, then gnaws holes in the wood and inserts its elongated middle finger to pull the grubs out.Read more...Collapse )

Organization: All profit from sales of any of my aye-aye art, either original paintings, drawings or prints, will be donated to sponsoring an aye-aye at Duke University's Primate Center. I also take sketch, painting, etc., commissions of aye-ayes for the cause.

I also have a future personal project in the making that will hopefully work with aye-aye conservation. I have no solid news at the moment, but will post here when I do.

My apologies for the huge post. :)
29th-Aug-2006 03:11 pm - Example Entry-Darwin's Fox
I did a quick search on foxes and found Darwin's Fox:

Darwin's Fox, Pseudalopex fulvipes

My crappy sketch (just wanted to post, didn't seriously art here)

Information: This fox is one of the most endangered canids in the world and is endemic to the temperate forests of Chile. It got its name from Charles Darwin who was the first to "collect" the fox by supposedly hitting one over the head with a hammer. The fox is very small and has a shaggy coat.

Organization: http://www.darwinfox.org/fulvipes/EnHome.htm
This would most likely be the organization I'd donate the proceeds to if I'd actually arted and been able to sell.

Get the idea?

This site is wonderful- so many animals and lots of information on each, including its current status of endangerment.
The IUCN Red List

Go there now and pick something to art!
