"Quagga" was a species closely related to the African Zebra. The Quagga was an African species that had a brownish yellow upper coat with dark stripes along the upper half of the body and a white chest. The Quagga was considered easy prey for Victorian colonists in African on the popular hunting reserves of the time. The Quagga were hunted so agressively that they were near extinct before the appropriate organisations could do anything to reverse the effects. The last Quagga died in captivity at a zoo in Amsterdam in 1883.

Multiple factors including climate change, expanding population and historic, systematic hunting have had their impact.
Using origami to depict sixteen species, the basic practice of folding paper resignating the belief that small changes made by many, can create positive changes.
These images are taken from a book series I created as an aid to educate younger audiences on the issues surrounding conservation and what we can do to help.
