The Art of Grace Fowler
Around the world, the populations of many iconic big cat species have precipitously declined in the last fifty years. Sixteen of the 36 wild cat species are considered vulnerable, endangered, or critically endangered by the IUCN.
There are multiple factors causing this alarming decline in big cat populations in the wild – most involve human activity.
The primary cause is the loss of precious habitat. Deforestation is advancing – much of which is the result of agricultural expansion, such as the growth of palm oil plantations in Indonesia. Climate change is also adding to habitat decline, by disturbing the balance of their natural ecosystems. Loss of these top predators also disturbs the balance of other species populations.
Artist, and cat enthusiast, Grace Fowler, shares her delightful celebration of these majestic creatures, in hopes that appreciation of their beauty and awareness of their plight will help to inspire their preservation.
