FRAGILE: GREAT WHITE SHARK print

15.00

A series of illustrations of animals with porcelain skin depicting the fragility of endangered species and nature in general.

The Great White Shark (Carcharodon Charcharias)
While an accurate global population number is unavailble, the great white is categorised as "vulnerable". The fact that it takes males approximately 26 years and females 33 years to reach maturity marks population recovery and regrowth as difficult.
In Australia the great white was declared "vulnerable" due to significant decline in numbers. Whilst being a protected species, the shark population in the Australian waters is yet to recover, most common threats being sports fishing and beach netting. It is also is under protection in New Zealand and California.
Not much is known about this shark, which, in addition to its sheer size (up to 26 feet), makes them utterly fascinating animals.

The flowers surrounding this shark are Cooktown Orchids, the floral emblem of Queensland Australia. It lives in a wide variety of habitats, such as trees, rocks, coastal shrubs, mangroves, rain forests and swamps. Despite this adaptability and wide range the flower's conservation status is considered "vulnerable". This fact and its Australian home makes it a kindred spirit to the Great White.
