World Ostrich Day

February 2nd - the second day of the second month, selected to celebrate the beloved giant flightless birds due to one of their defining features of having only two functional toes. Though the IUCN recognizes just one species of ostrich and as a species of "Least Concern" on its Red List, the North African Ostrich subspecies has been in rapid decline for over 50 years due to hunting, egg collection and habitat loss. 

Celebrate the day by enjoying the following collection of artwork by AFC members. Many are for sale with a portion of proceeds pledged to conservation.
