A Hug for my Prince
The latest delightful painting in the series of environmental and conservational fairies from fairy artist Myrea Pettit. The ever open arms of ‘Charity’ hug one of the worlds most colorful characters, the blue poison dart frog which is a relic species living in a few isolated patches of relic rainforest habitat and getting its name from the toxic secretions used by the indigenous tribes used to coat their blowpipe darts hunting for food. According to the Global Amphibian Assessment, around 28% of 234 known species of poison dart frogs are now threatened with extinction.
Fairy Charity extends to all living creatures creating awareness for the protection of the flora and fauna so these endangered creatures and many others may continue to florish and share our world.
