DIY Air Balloon Kit - Endangered Collection
This collection is all about the beautiful but sadly endangered wildlife animals. Inspiration came from National Geographic Photo Ark and its book called “Vanishing” led by photographer Joel Sartore. Vanishing is part of an inventory of endangered animals. Hopefully we can become more aware of the extinction crisis, while there’s still time to do something.
In this lamp you will find a few of these animals: Asian Elephant, Clouded Leopard, South China Tiger, West African Giraffe, Red Panda, Diademed Sifaka, Lemur Leaf Frog, Javan Green Magpie, Pink Throated Hummingbird and Large Blue Butterfly.
This Air Balloon is like a contemporary Noah’s Ark.
Here is the cool part, this lamp is definitively eco-friendly: there is no shipping pollution (we offer carbon free shipping), you will handcraft it and at same time you will be able to share the awareness of these beautiful endangered animals.
