Poster for UN World Wildlife Day

Big cats: predators under threat
I was honoured to be asked by the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) to design the poster for this year’s United Nations World Wildlife Day (3 March), which aims to celebrate and raise awareness of the world’s wild animals and plants. The theme for 2018 is “Big cats: predators under threat”. I wanted to show how fragile these seemingly powerful big cats are from the threats posed by climate change, poaching and habitat loss.

Over the past century we have been losing big cats, the planet’s most majestic predators, at an alarming rate. World Wildlife Day 2018 gives us the opportunity to raise awareness about their plight and to galvanize support for the many global and national actions that are underway to save these iconic species. Through World Wildlife Day big cats will generate the level of attention they all deserve to be sure they are with us for generations to come.

Available to buy from my Etsy shop.
