We were asked by Mutabi to spread the word. It's for a good cause and supports both artists, their work and nature, and includes mustelids.

This is a charity art project raising money for animal welfare and artists from all over the world are  invited to draw individual pictures and donate revenue to protect the environment.

Invitation to an art project for our nature


Do you like drawing or creating art?
Do you offer commissions or want to start with it?
Do you love our beautiful nature or have a favourite animal?

So please use your skills and join the Naturama Project 2018!
naturama-projekt.org/en/natura…

It is a project, that collects artists from all nations to draw together commissions for our environment and the animals, we love.
At the end of the project, we donate ALL money (each cent!) to environmental organisations to help saving:

* the last tigers
* wild wolves
* amazing birds of prey
* sweet and helpless pets
* otters and rare snow leopards
* the marine diversity
* the little but often forgotten wild bees
* the fluffy bats
* dangerours sharks
* and the cute hedgehogs!

2011 we started the Naturama Project and about 40 artists collected 1.800 Euro!
Since then we drew, crafed and created and were able to donate all in all
19.363,98 €!

And this year...?

Become an active part in naturama and send a mail at: naturama-projekt.org/en/natura… !

The project starts offically at 1st of April 2018! Join us now!

About Us

"Mustelidae (from Latin mustela, weasel), commonly referred to as the weasel family, are a family of carnivorous mammals.

The Mustelidae in general are phylogenetically relatively primitive and so were difficult to classify until genetic evidence started to become available. The increasing availability of such evidence may well result in some members of the family being moved to their own separate families, as has already happened with the skunks, previously considered to be members of the mustelid family.

Mustelids vary greatly in size and behavior. The least weasel is not much larger than a mouse. At the other end of the scale, giant otter can measure up to 2.4 metres (7.9 ft) in total length and sea otters can exceed 45 kilograms (99 lb). The wolverine can crush bones as thick as the femur of a moose to get at the marrow, and has been seen attempting to drive bears away from its kill. The sea otter uses rocks to break open shellfish to eat. The marten is largely arboreal, while the badger digs extensive networks of tunnels, called setts. Some mustelids have been domesticated. The ferret and the tayra are kept as pets (although the tayra requires a Dangerous Wild Animals licence in the UK), or as working animals for hunting or vermin control. Others have been important in the fur trade. The mink is often raised for its fur.

As well as the most species-rich family in the order Carnivora, mustelidae is one of the oldest. Mustelid-like forms first appeared about 40 million years ago in the Oligocene epoch, roughly coinciding with the appearance of rodents. The direct ancestors of the modern mustelids first appeared about 15 million years ago.

-Edited excerpt from Wikipedia

Mustelids include weasels, otters, minks, martens, wolverines, polecats, ferrets, grisons, and badgers. Skunks were somewhat recently removed from the family Mustelidae, but are acceptable in submissions.
