Celebrating Wildlife

World Wildlife Day is celebrated annually on March 3rd and the theme for 2022 is “Recovering key species for ecosystem restoration”. The celebrations will seek to draw attention to the conservation status of some of the most critically endangered species of wild fauna and flora and to drive discussions towards imagining and implementing solutions to conserve them.

The event was created in 2013 when the United Nations General Assembly proclaimed this day as United Nations World Wildlife Day to celebrate and raise awareness of the world’s wild animals and plants.

LEARN ABOUT WILDLIFE THROUGH SKETCHING

As you probably know, I’m a strong advocate for using drawing as a tool to deepen people’s understanding of wildlife. For once you’ve looked at an organism long enough to sketch it, you’ll have noticed things about its anatomy and behavior that you might not have appreciated before. This, I hope, will lead you to have greater empathy for the species, and be inspired to support its conservation in the wild.

Below you’ll find links to my tutorials that will lead you step-by-step through drawing a variety of flora and fauna. As I demonstrate how to draw each species, I’ll also share cool facts about their biology, ecology, and anatomy to help you understand them better. You can also find dozens of wildlife education and sketching workshops on my live streaming page on Crowdcast.
