PANTHER CHAMELEON

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

Conservation Status: LEAST CONCERN

Population:  UNKNOWN 

BIOLOGY

The panther chameleon derived its name from its panther-esque spots and like all chameleon’s its colour changes according to mood, temperature and light

Although this species is not threatened at present, all wildlife on Madagascar is becoming increasingly vulnerable due to human activity and change of land use.

This species is abundant in lowland degraded scrub and forest habitats, where it uses trees of up to 10m in height. Panther Chameleons are found in sites associated with forest or in areas that have been highly disturbed by people. This species has rapid growth, a relatively short life span and could probably withstand increased levels of exploitation as long as degraded forest cover does not diminish.

THREATS

Habitat degradation is unlikely to represent a major threat to this species given its apparently adaptability to, and indeed preference for, degraded habitats. Although this is the most sought-after Madagascan chameleon in the international pet trade, current levels of exploitation are not thought to represent a threat. 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.
