FOSA

This astonishing drawing of a fosa exhibited in Where Did All the Animals Go? exhibition is accompanied by the following information:

Conservation Status: VULNERABLE

Population2,635 – 8,626

BIOLOGY

The fosa or fossa is the largest carnivore on the island of Madagascar and although cat-like is related to the mongoose family

Mainly solitary, the fosa is active both arboreally and on the ground. Its diet is known to include many animals in the forests it inhabits, including lemurs, rodents and reptiles. Lemurs are frequently caught in trees. Between two and four young are born; because infants remain with the mother for the first year, females only breed every other year. Maximum known age in captivity is more than 20 years. 

THREATS

The major threats to fosa are hunting for bushmeat, habitat loss and fragmentation of forests largely caused by the conversion of forested areas to agricultural land and pasture; selective logging degrades the habitat.  Information credit: IUCN Red List

 

EXHIBITION & CONFERENCE

'Where Did All the Animals Go?' An Exhibition of North East School Children’s Biro Drawings Working with Artist, Jane Lee McCracken featuring Biro drawings of some of the world’s most endangered species, at Thought Foundation Art Gallery 20 June - 22 July 2019. Jane worked with over 400 children visiting five schools across the region to deliver Biro drawing workshops. Both exhibition and the Endangered Species Conference, also organised by Jane, are supported by international wildlife charity Born Free, with President and Co-Founder Will Travers, OBE headlining the conference. Included in the exhibition is a selection of Jane’s Biro drawings, which explore loss to the environment, generated by human destruction.

Both exhibition and conference call for wider awareness and compassion for wildlife affected by human destruction, and the subsequent impact of wildlife depletion on humanity if we don’t act now. These events, which also include workshops and film screenings during the exhibition, reveal the facts as to why and how species are threatened and provide access to vital knowledge as well as concise, key actions each one of us can take, so we can make positive changes for wildlife, both locally and globally.
