wad_fbnews-04b-01

世界動物日明信片義賣 postcard for world animal day

為了今年的世界動物日,我們連同十個本地創作單位 cross over 繪畫了十款動物明信片作義賣。藝術創作者大多習慣獨立創作,我們希望能製造一個機會,讓大家一起合作和交流,每一幅畫都滆合了&dear和另一個單位的意念和風格。這十款明信片所籌得的款項能幫助生態教育及資源中心和護鯊行動繼續保護我們的生態和動物。
for this years’ world animal day, we have invited a group of artists to create a set of cross-over postcard for charitable purpose, using animals as a theme. as artist usually work on their own, we would like to create a chance for different artists to work together. every postcard is created by &dear and another artist, combining our styles and thoughts. with the profit of this project, we would like to raise money to help Eco-education & Resources Centre and Shark Savers (Hong Kong) to continue their great work of protecting our environment and animals.

the ugly animal preservation society

uaps

每當提到保育,大部分人都會立刻想起像大熊貓這些毛茸茸、逗人喜愛的動物。其實,還有很多同樣瀕危的動物,卻因為牠們的樣子長得不討好,往往被人忽視而得不到應有的協助。就好像長得像被車壓扁了的梅爾斯蘇里蟾蜍,雖然這種蟾蜍的瀕危程度和老虎一樣,但卻授予不同的待遇。還有很多樣貌醜陋的動物例如長鼻猴和水滴魚等都已瀕臨滅絕。每天都有200多個物種更接近瀕臨滅絕,如果保育界只將目光放在樣貌可愛的動物身上,只會令其他動物得不到公平的救援。有見及此,醜陋動物保護協會便成立了,並專門為醜陋的瀕危動物發聲,免得牠們因遭受保育上的歧視絕種。
&dear也希望把牠們畫得可愛一點,讓大家多給牠們一點關注。

you will immediately think of a cute, furry panda when taking about conservation, but there are a lot of endangered animals out there who don’t get the attention and help that they deserved just because they are aesthetically challenged i.e. they look ugly. Like the Myers’ Surinam toad, which looks like it’s been squashed in a road accident, even though its population is under the same threat as the tiger, it is not treated with the same conservation affections. other “ugly” animals like the proboscis monkey and the blobfish are also on the edge of extinction. there are more than 200 species becoming extinct everyday, if conservation efforts are only focused on the cute and cuddly ones, the rest would be in huge threat. this is why the Ugly Animal Preservation Society was born, to raise the voice for the ugly endangered animals so that they would be treated with the same level of attention, preventing extinction.

stuffed buddy

love dolls

不僅孩子喜歡毛公仔,原來這些玩具亦能為動物帶來安慰。小馬Breeze出生幾個小時便被母親遺棄。牠被送往庇護所並為牠提供食物和治療,工作人員更送牠一隻很大的泰迪熊。缺乏安全感的Breeze,泰迪熊不但能陪伴牠,亦能帶給牠安慰。

not only children love stuffed toys, animals could get comfort from a teddy bear as well. Breeze, a pony , was abandoned when it was only a few hours old. he was then sent to the mare and foal sanctuary where he is given food and medication, as well as a giant teddy bear. this teddy could keep Breeze company and comfort him, just like the way soft toys do for human babies.
