The Echo Of Diminishment
This is a fine art print of an original watercolor, charcoal, pastel and ink illustration. It is printed on 100% cotton rag acid-free velvet paper with archival inks. I have left a white border for framing purposes. This print is signed and beautifully packaged in a clear polyethylene sleeve with title card.
Ships carefully packaged in a secure mailer.
50% of all proceeds from the sale of this print will go to The Center For Biological Diversity. Wolves play a profound role in maintaining the health, structure and balance of ecosystems. I encourage anyone unfamiliar with their ability to transform not only plant and animal communities, but the very landscape in which they live, to watch this short video on how wolves change rivers.
For more information on how wolf conservation efforts are currently playing out in the United States, I suggest reading this National Geographic interview with author Brenda Peterson: news.nationalgeographic.com/2017/06/wolf-nation-brenda-peterson-wolves
Gray wolves remain in just 5 percent of their historic range in the lower 48 states and have not recovered in many places where they could, like the West Coast, Southern Rocky Mountains and New England. Currently, the US is on track to remove them from the Endangered Species List (vote to take place July of 2019). If this happens, we’ll be facing a scenario in which states are permitted to open up a trophy hunting season on gray wolves, putting them in the crosshairs of hunters, commercial trappers and ranchers. Please contact your U.S. Senators and urge them to vote no on delisting wolves. These beautiful creatures deserve more than to be reduced to a pelt or a trophy on a wall.
