Forsten’s Tortoises

20% of the sale proceeds going directly to the Turtle Survival Alliance (TSA), an action-oriented global partnership that is committed to zero turtle extinctions in the 21st century.

This screen print was created in collaboration with Another Escape, a magazine focused on outdoor lifestyle, creative culture, and sustainable living. Co-founders Jody Daunton and Rachel Taylor travelled to Borneo to explore the wild and bio-diverse habitats to follow in the footsteps of the great British explorer, biologist and naturalist Alfred Russell Wallace. Tragically, as Wallace predicted, many of the region’s animals are facing extinction.
