The Sad in My Eyes

World of Animals - - Sketch For Survival -

Karen Lau­rence-Rowe

Karen is an award-win­ning artist based in Nairobi, Kenya, and has do­nated two pieces to this year’s col­lec­tion: an ele­phant sketch, and this won­der­ful paint­ing of an orang­utan and baby.

Karen specif­i­cally wanted to draw at­ten­tion to the plight of orang­utans to­day, whose rain­for­est habi­tat has been dec­i­mated by palm oil plan­ta­tions and min­ing. There are es­ti­mated to be fewer than 120,000 orang­utans re­main­ing in the wild.
