This piece is to create an awareness about the large number of animals on the WWF endangered animals list, some that you may not have ever heard of and sadly might not hear much more about.
I chose this animal because of the name it made me laugh and has a funny element to it. Most men I told about this animal looked at me and giggled – but when I asked them an hour later they all remembered the name.
When I set up Claire Lewis Co as an environmentally responsible education and lifestyle company my mission was to make it cool to care about the earth and have fun doing it. Well tough guys who didn’t really care about endagered animals took notice of this species all because of the name. The African wild ass!
It also is incredibly cute and I have never heard of this animal before. Lets hope we can create an awareness and help take this wild ass off the endangered animals list. It would be too sad to see it become extinct, gone, never to be seen again.
