"Grevy's Zebra" - purplehorse75

TITLE: Grevy's Zebra
ARTIST: Kim Loberg Doffin
EBAY ID: purplehorse75

Why I'm using my creativity to save the rainforest...

I decided to enter an ACEO of a Grevy's zebra in the Endangered Species contest because zebras are among my favorite African animals. Many people think that there are an abundance of zebra herds in Africa. True, the plains zebras are plentiful, but there are also zebra species that are endangered. The Grevy's zebra is one of those species. By creating the card, I was able to show that zebras are endangered, too.

I am honored to be a part of the Endangered Species Quilt. It has been a project in which certain artisans have selflessly given their talent and time for a worthy cause. Many acres of rain forest are destroyed daily by logging and climate changes. With the sale of the Endangered Species Quilt, we, as ACEO artists, will be able to save some of the rain forest from destruction and give back to the public for all of the appreciated support they have shown us and continue to show us by collecting our ACEO cards.
