"The Earth’s ecosystem is beautifully complex but fragile. Over half of the Earth's biodiversity has disappeared in the last 50 years alone. So, to celebrate the Year of the Tiger, I have teamed up with WWF Singapore to celebrate these animals. Many beautiful creatures are gone forever, and each loss erodes the foundation of our ecosystem. The tiger is one of the most graceful and powerful animals in the world. They have no formidable foes in nature other than humans. Human poaching and destruction of their natural habitat has driven tiger numbers to decline by an alarming 97% and they are on the verge of extinction in parts of Southeast Asia. I hope this illustration can be a reminder for us to value and protect these magnificent animals as well as keep in mind the importance of biological diversity to a healthy planet." -Shepard
