I have decided to make original art and send it all over the world to appeal for good causes such as animal and human rights. I find that making the mail look different, it may get seen more likely. And I of course then post the image in social medias with the information behind the appeal, to spread the word and get more people to act. So even if it gets thrown away, someone has seen it. These pieces in this post were published in the earlier blog that I had to remove and replace with the current one, so some of you may have seen these before.
The first drawing was for an appeal made in Finnish to a Finnish minister to ask for wolverines to be treated better and more according to recommendations by environmental organizations which were made based on scientific facts. The wolverine has been under protection in Finland due to it being an endangered species, but recent decisions by current political leaders have risked their existence further by allowing killing rights during nesting season, which is against all scientific knowledge from experts.
The other drawings, my wolves, were drawn to appeal for the wolves of Kenai and Denali in Alaska. Very poorly judged actions have been taken to let hunters use unfair means to catch wolves. The whole way governments are dealing with beasts is based on false information. It does not help the local fauna, nor does it help the cattle industry. Experts say that farmers should be paid compensation based on information on nest sizes in the area that season. This would prevent false claims for compensation for damages that may have nothing to do with the beasts in the area. Preventive hunting does not secure the local nature but just makes it weaker. Beasts are an important part of the environment and the health of it’s’ animal population.
Good sources for information on these and other animal causes are all over the internet, but what I used for my wolf appeal was this fantastic site: NYWolf of The Wolf Conservation Center (WCC) and Wolf Conservation Center on Facebook. I know there is another great conservation place in Colorado, as well.
