The Endangered Species Print Project raises over $10,000

The Endangered Species Print Project, a project of SAIC alums Molly Schafer (MFA 2006) and Jenny Kendler (MFA 2006), has raised over $10, 000. for critically endangered species. Schafer and Kendler started the project in 2009 by selling prints of their animal art and donating the proceeds to conservation organizations. The duo has since partnered with 18 conservation organizations and scientists as well as 15 artists to raise over $10,000. for conservation efforts including habitat protection, breeding programs, and education.


Here's how the project works: An artist creates a painting or drawing of a specific critically endangered species. The artwork is printed as limited edition prints, with the edition number reflecting the remaining animal or plant populations. For example, only 14 populations of the Dwarf Trout lilly remain in the wild, so only 14 prints of SAIC alum Matthew Hilshorst's (MFA 2006) Dwarf Trout lilly painting will ever be made. The Endangered Species Print project prints are printed on bamboo paper by the SAIC Service Bureau.
