Inktober DAY 13 by ElbenherzArt Inktober DAY 13 by ElbenherzArt
Quetzal
Population: No Data
Status: Threatened

"The Quetzal is a medium sized bird that is found inhabiting the moist, tropical rainforests of Central America from southern Mexico right down into Panama. There are six sub-species of Quetzal that are found in varying geographic locations including the Crested Quetzal, the Golden-headed Quetzal, the White-tipped Quetzal, the Pavonine Quetzal, the Eared Quetzal and the most famously known Resplendent Quetzal, all of which belong to the Trogon family of birds. Unfortunately, these striking birds are threatened in Guatemala and elsewhere throughout their range. Like many other animals, despite their beauty, their wonderful plumage and delightful name, they are now an endangered species. Little is known about these impressive birds, but they are threatened by continued destruction of their cloud forest habitat.

Since quetzals do not reproduce in captivity, it is vital that their habitat is protected to ensure they do not disappear. "

I decided to dedicate this years inktober mostly to endangered, extinct or enslaved animal species. 
In November I'll sell some of the originals to raise money for local animal shelters. <3

Fantastische Stücke - und richtig fleißig warst Du auch, 1 Bild täglich soweit ich sehe!

Leider war ich über 2 Monate ohne Internet und bin gerade erst dabei alles aufzuholen...
