Clyde of Atascosa

Artist: Pamela Askew

Posted: 3 Mar, 2021 | Updated: 3 Mar, 2021

Each year the Friends of Laguna Atascosa and the USFWS in Brownsville, Texas hold a fundraising festival to support their ocelot  conservation projects.  They are maintaining the habitat these beautiful, elusive animals still have in south Texas, documenting populations, and creating underpasses below highways for access between areas used by ocelots, since highway deaths account for a large number of ocelots killed each year.  This year the festival is virtual because of Covid, and I have given this painting to be auctioned with 100% of the proceeds going to the cause.

MEMBER OF THE BOARD Plus ART & NATURE GROUP ORGANIZER/LEADER- Community Conservation Group 

The conservation area near my art studio has four distinct ecosystems within a relatively small space almost completely surrounded by development, so there has been concern about its fragility and its importance. We have tiny Western Screech Owls, Pacific Skinks and other creatures raising families right by the fence lines. The forest floor has changed, water supplies have been diverted and some trees have fallen. The district parks do their best to care for fragile areas, but community support...

Having a love of camels, partly due to having been a camel safari guide in South Africa (many eons ago!), when I met John Hare OBE and heard about the wild camels of Mongolia, I was naturally keen to get on board to try and help raise much needed funds for his Wild Camel Protection Foundation.  (Please do visit www.wildcamels.com for the full fascinating story).

These wild camels, which are separate species from the Bactrian camel, are the 8th most endangered large mammal on the planet and there are only 1000 or so of them left!  They are truly remarkable...
