If you walk into the saint Julie accessible park you might think you are entering into a jungle. There are animals all over the place. The animals were al created by the artists who are working to protect the animals in Nicaragua from extinction. The fair was a huge success in that many children and adults participated. We had over 400 entries in the drawing contest. And each school presented a different cultural activity as well as organization throughout Matagalpa shared their educational material. The zoo from Managua came and presented their programs to try to help animals in danger of extinction.
But what do the artist do to continue this work. This issue of the animals in danger of extinction is very big and actually there are very few people involved in this great task. The artists are working on many different art projects sharing with others about the animals and the need to change our own lives in order to protect the animals.
They are painting animal cards, and CDs with animals in danger of extinction and creating animals out of used tires for people to use as planters. Any way that they can bring these animals into the consciousness of people they are trying. They have posted video on youtube and on facebook. They are receiving talks about the animals and plan a trip to Managua to find out what the zoo is doing. In Nicaragua the zoo is the main place where people receive information on the animals in danger of extinction. Many of these artists have never been able to see the animals that they are painting, except through fotos and videos. Because of this project many of these artist are beginning to feel they can make a change in the world. Thank you for your support of this project and for caring about the animals who are in danger. What is interesting is that the dire situations that Nicaraguans are living also affects animals who migrate for the winter or summer to Nicaragua. What happens when birds who have migrated to the same spot hundreds of years and they come and that area has been developed into a single crop farm. Those birds have no place to go and they begin to be in danger even though they live in the north or south of Nicaragua. So it is important that this work continues for the whole world.
