I started this personal project in 2019 as a way to raise awareness about the plight of Wild Florida. With more than 1000 people moving to Florida every day, mass development is threatening the wildlife that makes this state so unique, and the resources our residents depend on. I initially illustrated 16 endangered, threatened, and endemic animals that utilize our last stretch of connected habitats (the Florida Wildlife Corridor), but this project has since grown into an ambitious goal to encompass all of Florida's magical, bizarre, and wild biodiversity.
There is more to come from this project, so stay tuned!
But for now, check out the hashtag #InkingWildFlorida on Instagram to read more about each species.
