The Danger of Extinction
Hundreds of African animals are killed every day by poachers, snares and habitat loss. Many of these species are threatened or in danger of extinction. At the same time, Africa's human population is growing at a rapid rate, putting enormous pressure on animal habitats. It is estimated that by the year 2050, many of Africa's most important species - elephants, Rhinos, Lions and Painted dogs -will be, essentially ,extinct in their native habitats!
For humans and wildlife in Africa to coexist, local people will need to make a serious commitment to wildlife conservation.This will change only by educating children, and building a culture of protecting these animals and changing attitudes about the important role animals play in Africa's heritage and future.Our goal is to reach these kids and change the future of wildlife in Africa by using the magic of art and creativity to ignite their passion for protecting wildlife.These children crave education and Art education is almost unknown in their schools.
