Nua Oon Female 15yrs
Nua Oon is an endangered Asian elephant who was born on June 12, 2004. She was 15 yrs old when she painted this picture. This scene of two elephants, a tree, and the sun is her thing, and she loves to paint it.
Throughout history, elephants have been revered by the Thai people and remain a permanent symbol of their culture. The Asian elephant population has significantly declined due to habitat loss and agricultural mechanization. Regrettably, these beautiful animals are now on the endangered species list. As we learned from the extinction of the Passenger Pigeon, an immediate and honest conservation effort must be made to defend the Asian elephant against its extinction.

The American Flamingo is the only flamingo species native to North America, but is rarely seen in the United States anymore. Flamingos embody the saying, "you are what you eat." Their pink and reddish colors come from eating pigments found in algae and invertebrates. They're often seen standing on one leg to preserve body heat, tucking the other leg into their feathers to keep it warm. The Flamingo population is mostly affected by what happens to their habitats and breeding grounds.

Before 1900, the Red-shouldered Hawk was the one of the most common North American raptors. Since then, their population has been significantly reduced by the clearing of the wet hardwood forests they prefer. Additionally, they were affected by unchecked hunting and DDT use until conservation laws took effect in the later half of the 20th century. Also, power lines and cars routinely exact a toll on these guys. Their most common call sound is the unmistakable 'kee-aah' and are so loud that they are known as America’s most vocal hawks. Their red shoulders are visible when they're perched. Being carnivores, they feed on gophers, mice, snakes, fish, other birds, and large insects, to name a few.
