As an artist & animal LOVER especially CATS! I wanted to utilize my art & designs, to help raise awareness & help donate to the conservation of our planets LARGEST BIG CAT, the TIGER!
I have always been fascinated with the majestic, beautiful, and mysterious Tiger, and I want to do all that I can to help protect this magnificent animal.
** A portion of ALL proceeds from my ANMIAL PRINT COLLECTIONS are donated to the WWF (World Wildlife Foundation) to assist in the TX2 movement. Together we can help spread the word, raise awareness, and make the year of 2022 the Next Year of the Tiger! **
The rapid decline of the worlds Tiger population has always troubled me, and weighed heavy on my heart. I have always admired the divine majestic beauty, power, charisma and grace possessed so effortlessly by the largest cat on the planet. How could this powerful creature be on the road to extinction? It is hard to believe and to accept, as the global wild tiger population numbers are horrifying, but there is hope…
The TX2 movement was ironically and perhaps methodically created in 2010, which happens to also be the last Chinese Year of the Tiger, in accordance to the Chinese Calendar. The movement was created not only to save the worlds tiger population, but created with the intent to double it, by the Next Year of the Tiger in 2022! The goal is big, but we can help to do our part, by raising awareness and contributing what we can to assist the National Wildlife Foundation and help make TX2 a reality.
As the World Wildlife Foundation states on their website: “… by 2010, we had lost over 95% of the world’s wild tiger population to rampant poaching and habitat loss. As few as 3,200 of them were left. - An ambitious and visionary species conservation goal was set by the governments of the 13 tiger range countries: to double the number of wild tigers by 2022 – the next Chinese year of the tiger.” (http://tigers.panda.org/tx2/)
