Estas en especie en peligro de extinción son recreadas en papel por Patrick Cabral

Patrick Cabral, es un artista con sede en Manila que se encarga de exponer con este creativo proyecto,varias especies que se encuentran en peligro de extinción, con el fin de crear conciencia ambiental y preservar estas especies que se encuentran en extinción. Cada obra que realiza este artista, tiene un tinte de delicadeza y una variedad de detalles que enaltecen la belleza de estos animales, a través del papel cortado. 

The first thing I read on Facebook today was "Poachers Break Into French Zoo, Kill White Rhino And Steal His Horn” . "Poachers forced their way into a French zoo and killed a southern white rhinoceros named Vince, sawing off one of his horns before fleeing into the night." "Despite bans by international convention and French law, the illegal sale of rhino horns persists because of demand for use in traditional Asian medicine. A kilogram of rhino horn sold on the black market for nearly $54,000 in 2015, according to the zoo.” The white rhino is an endangered species, with an estimated 21,000 remaining in the wild across the world, mainly in South Africa and Uganda. Their horns are sought after in Asia, where they are valued for their supposed aphrodisiac qualities. Someone actually suggested that maybe we should cut-off all their horns to prevent poachers from killing Rhinos. It’s infuriating how we are at the point that people are considering this as a solution. This animal was the hardest one to make. I really want to make something that highlights Rhinos specially when @inkhappythoughts shared that there are only three northerns whites left and it’s guarded 24/7 by armed men. This papercut is inspired by Albrecht Durer’s woodcut from 1515 . It’s one of my most favourite image ever. The first time I saw it was from an encyclopaedia and it has been seared into my memory. I want to make a piece that I would personally would want to keep and this one is among my most favourite. You can purchase the artwork at or follow the link on my profile. I’m donating 50% to @wwfphilippines Find out more about WWF’s initiative on Rhinos at Follow @Aoklife to find out how you can help Charitable Institutions raise funds. Let me know what other endangered animals you want to see on paper cut on the comment section.

Algunos de los animales realizados en papel, son tigres, pandas, pangolines y algunos otros animales que se encuentran amenazados. Estas obras contienen varias capas que son cortadas a mano e incorporadas con adornos y diseños decorativos con la cara de cada animal. Cabral, trabaja en este proyecto desde noviembre del 2016 y ya ha logrado una lista extensa de animales en peligro. Este artista está donando la mitad de sus ingresos a WWF Filipinas para la preservación de las especies. 

It’s almost weekend in my side of the world, but before I get some rest, here’s another paper cut for my @wwfphilippines and @aoklife collab. Here’s a fun fact I didn’t know about gorillas. Around the nose, there are a few wrinkles unique to each gorilla, a fact used by scientists to quickly identify them in the wild. All species (and sub-species) of gorilla are listed as Critically Endangered on the IUCN Red List.[12] Threats to gorilla survival include habitat destruction and poaching for the bushmeat trade. In 2004, a population of several hundred gorillas in the Odzala National Park, Republic of Congo was essentially wiped out by the Ebola virus.[67] A 2006 study published in Science concluded more than 5,000 gorillas may have died in recent outbreaks of the Ebola virus in central Africa. The researchers indicated in conjunction with commercial hunting of these apes, the virus creates "a recipe for rapid ecological extinction".[68] Conservation efforts include the Great Apes Survival Project, a partnership between the United Nations Environment Programme and the UNESCO, and also an international treaty, the Agreement on the Conservation of Gorillas and Their Habitats, concluded under UNEP-administered Convention on Migratory Species. The Gorilla Agreement is the first legally binding instrument exclusively targeting gorilla conservation; it came into effect on 1 June 2008.
