Sea Turtle Conservation

Summary
<em>Edit Conservation Project/Cause</em> Sea Turtle Conservation -  | Carleen Ross
Purpose/Mission: 
I am an artist that loves the oceans and all the creatures that exist within them. Every day I challenge myself to learn more about the animals I paint by reading books, scientific journals, and online articles. I watch documentary films that focus on educating the public about the perils that exist for the animals that live in the oceans. I speak and keep in contact with many sea turtle specialists in order to add to the knowledge I have acquired, and I incorporate the information they share into my artwork. I want the people who work closely with sea turtles to be able to look at my work and know I have everything scientifically and anatomically correct. In turn, this makes for a more realistic painting for others to view. But with all of the scientific knowledge that precedes the actually painting, I am still an artist who needs time to sit and create.
Start/End Date: 
Monday, 29 April, 2019 to Wednesday, 29 April, 2020

I regularly conduct art conservation talks to various groups and work with several sea turtle conservation societies where I donate portions of my profits to them annually. Through my support I hope to help them educate others around the world so that we can see these creatures leave the endangered species list. It's through the artwork that I create that I hope to inspire others to see the beauty that exists in our world. It's time for us to begin taking care of our earth and the creatures that exist with us. 

Background: 

It was through the creation of my first sea turtle painting that I became inspired to learn more about this amazing creature and do as much as I can to help them. Since then I have not looked back and have created more than 50 sea turtle paintings. I try to work closely with sea turtle experts. I donate profits to the organizations that work the closest with me and conduct conservation talks to inspire others to care about our oceans and the creatures that live within the waters.
