WATERCOLOR PAINTING FOR YOUTH: ENDANGERED SPECIES

Monday, October 3, 2022


QUESTION: What is an "Endangered Species"?

ANSWER:    An endangered species is an animal or plant that's considered at risk of extinction. Extinction is the state
                   or fact of being rendered nonexistent, physically unsound, or useless.  In the U.S. alone, there are 1675
                   endangered species. Species become endangered for two main reasons: loss of habitat and loss of genetic
                   variation.  We will also discuss extinction.


Gray Wolf

Painting the fur of the gray wolf is an art in itself.  Using the watercolor technique is especially good for to learn how to paint their fur. Gray wolves are endangered because there were so few left in the United States and they had to be protected under the Endangered Species Act. Grey wolves are endangered because people hunted them like pests, took over their land, and killed them because they thought the wolves were hunting their livestock.
