Endangered Species Print Project
|July 2009 - Ongoing|
The Endangered Species Print Project raises funds to support the conservation of critically endangered species through the sale of limited-edition art prints.
The number of prints available depends on the number of plants or animals remaining in a species. For example, only 45 Amur Leopards remain in the wild so the edition for the Amur Leopard print is only 45.
ESPP is an ongoing project by artists Jenny Kendler and Molly Schafer, and since it's inception in 2009, has raised over $13,000 for conservation. The artworks, created by collaborating with 16 other artists, and supporting over 20 different species/conservation teams, have toured the world and were recently featured in a 6-month long exhibition at The Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum.
Under the ESPP moniker, Kendler & Schafer also created the first series of art for The Endangered Species Condom Project, winner of 2 Addy Awards & featured in the New York Times and on a billboard in Times Square. Over 450,000 endangered species condoms featuring our artwork have been given out nationwide.
