We are beyond devastated by the horrifying oil spill in Huntington Beach.
The oil spill has impacted not only the coastline, also the local wetlands are slicked in oil.
Talbert Marsh, a feeding ground for endangered least terns and home to at least 90 species of shorebirds including threatened snowy plovers, brown pelicans, egrets, herons, cormorants, gulls, ducks and many other shorebirds is now slicked with spilled oil.
For the entire month of October and November, FashWand will be donating 40% of the proceeds from our White Opal The Great Egret Collection to Wetlands & Wildlife Care Center in Huntington Beach to help save the oiled wildlife.
About the Collection:
Inspired by the natural beauty, color, elegance, and grace of the Great Egret, this painting is drawn with black ink and embellished with acrylic paint details. I have had the pleasure of encountering this stunningly beautiful egret every time during my hiking trips for the last several months at the San Elijo Lagoon Ecological Reserve and Nature Center, and I decided to design a painting that resembles the beauty of this egret. Sadly now it is unknown whether this beautiful egret is going survive or end up a victim of the horrific CA oil spill.
One touch of nature makes the whole world kin. — William Shakespeare
About Great Egrets:
Great Egrets are precious tall birds and generally live in shallow coastal lagoons, marshes, or around ponds. They can live up to 22 years!
Sadly they were "nearly wiped out in the United States in the late 1800s, when its plumes were sought for use in fashion, the Great Egret made a comeback after early conservationists put a stop to the slaughter and protected its colonies.". Audubon.org And now their life is threatened due to this horrific oil spill.
