An Eye on extinction: Grevys Zebra


An Eye on Extinction: Grevys Zebra 2014

As you read this, hundreds of thousands of animals face the very real threat of extinction. There have only been a handful of periods throughout the history of the earth where extinction levels have been this high. The fate of our world’s animals seems grim if we do nothing and so I decided to try and help raise awareness using art. I wanted to depict an animal beseeching the viewer for help and decided it would be the Grévys Zebra. The Grévys Zebra is currently under severe extinction risk and I hope this image asks you the question: ‘what can you do to help?
