Molly Schafer sent in an email about her collaboration with Jenny Kendler in a new project called The Endangered Species Print Project.
The Endangered Species Print Project (ESPP) offers limited edition prints of critically endangered species. The number of prints available corresponds with the remaining animal or plant populations. For example, only 30 Amur Leopards remain in the wild, so for this edition, only 30 prints will ever be made. All proceeds from ESPP are donated to conservation organizations. A different organization, whose mission is to the ensure the survival of the specie depicted, is chosen for each print.
The first four prints offered by ESPP are The Golden Frog, The Vancouver Island Marmot (shown above), The Seychelles Sheath-tailed Bat, and The Indri Lemur and are available as 8” x 10” archival giclées. I love the fact that the two artist are using their talents to support conservation efforts and biodiversity, and hopefully to raise awareness about these endangered species who are under the threat of extinction.
