Vultures on my mind – mind the vultures!
In collaboration with Wildlife ACT, this collection of vulture inspired artworks was exhibited at The Walt Disney Family Museum's first Cause Awareness exhibition, titled: Creative Conservation: The Art of Endangered Animals.
"Wildlife ACT is both proud and excited to partner with the Walt Disney Family Museum to bring vultures to life, through art, showcasing this incredible species and the crucial role they play in maintaining the health of our ecosystems," says Wildlife ACT Managing Director, Mark Gerrard.
Inspired by Africa’s eleven endemic vultures these artworks celebrate the vulture and the people working to ensure its survival.
Working on this collection “Vultures on my mind – mind the vultures!” the concept of “abacus animals” came about when I realised that as soon as a wild animal is numbered, there’s a good chance that its days are also numbered! Conservation organisation WildLife ACT begin their uphill battle to increase the numbers and save the species by documenting each bird with a number, this allows them to track and identify the birds.
Proceeds from the sale of these artworks will be donated to WildLife ACT to support their ongoing vulture conservation work.
