This month's theme is about raising awareness for threatened or endangered species. :nod:

Whether you love realism or draw in a more "cartoony" style, you are welcome to join in as we raise awareness for the world's most threatened species! Although there's not much you can do to "think outside the box" with this theme, there is still room for creativity. the only requirement is that your card features at least one animal that is listed as vulnerable, endangered, or critically endangered, by the ICUN Red List of Threatened Species. Also remember that your card should be created and submitted to the "Monthly Theme" folder this month only. I will have to decline ACEOs that were created before this date. The goal of these themes is, after all, to get the creative juices flowing and our pencils/markers/brushes moving! :nod:

Check out these deviations for some inspiration! -->

Note: "Endangered Animals" is a theme that will run from now, until the end of the month. A new theme will be announced on the first of August!

Also, be sure to take a look at my personal month-long Endangered Animal ACEO Project, where I will be creating one endangered animal ACEO every day for the entire month, for a total of 31 cards by August first. You can view the cards in my gallery here.

Your Founder,

I almost feel stupid how long it took from me to understand how ICUN red list works... xD I almost got mad when I searched for "saimaa ringed seal" and "pusa hispida saimensis" and found NOTHING at all. Then I realized I had to search only with "pusa hispida", as this is a subspecies of those seals. And of course when I searched with "pusa hispida", it tells me it's least concerned species overall. :|
Well, I still assume my ACEO will get through, since saimaa ringed seals are critically endangered. c:

Don't worry, I constantly have the same problem with the Red List. A,ur Leopards aren't listed because they are a subspecies as well. And those big cats are critically endanger, just like your seals. :nod:

Thank you for participating in the Mnthly Theme! Your card is great. :D

Ah, okay. It's a bit confusing list, but it's good to know I haven't been the only one with these "problems".

And it was fun to participate, actually I might still do another card. There is this other animal that came into my mind when I was thinking about this month's theme... Another animal that have some connections with this area where I live. :)

Do animals classified as "vulnerable" count?

Yes, as long as they are listed as vulnerable, endangered, or critically endangered. :nod:
