Faces of the Endangered
SAVING ANIMALS, ONE PAINTING AT A TIME
Bria Neff is an amazing nine-year-old artist and conservationist. After learning that species all around the world are becoming endangered, Bria decided she would start a project to save the animals. Her Roots & Shoots project is called Faces of the Endangered.
Bria’s idea for the project came about when she participated in an art contest hosted by the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW). She submitted a painting of an African lion, which became one of the 18 winning entries. Bria then decided she wanted to paint even more endangered species. “I wanted to raise awareness and save the animals,” Bria explains. By selling her detailed and attractive paintings of endangered animals, Bria has raised $4,000 to date which she has donated to IFAW.
