The Danger of Extinction
Hundreds of African animals are killed every day by poachers, snares and habitat loss. Many species across our planet are threatened or in danger of extinction. At the same time, human population is growing at a rapid rate, putting enormous pressure on animal habitats in Africa and around the globe. 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 to coexist, local people will need to make a serious commitment to wildlife conservation.This will change only by educating the world's children, and building a culture of protecting wildlife by changing attitudes about the important role animals play in those children's heritage and future.Our goal is to reach these kids and change the future of wildlife, especially 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.
