American Artist to Study Endangered Argali Mountain Sheep of Mongolia

Susan Fox wins Artists for Conservation Flag Expedition Fellowship to study the Argali Mountain Sheep and the Desert-Steppe of Mongolia.

5/1/2009 - Vancouver, B.C., CANADA -- (May 1, 2009)- The Artists for Conservation Foundation (AFC) is pleased to announce its ninth fellowship involving a grant of $5,000 US, under the AFC Flag Expeditions Program, awarded to wildlife artist Susan Fox of McKinleyville, California, USA. The objective of the AFC's Flag Expeditions Program is to make possible the artistic field study and rendering of endangered species or habitats deserving of greater public attention, particularly in remote parts of the world.

Ms. Fox will travel to the Ikh Nartiin Chuluu Nature Reserve in Mongolia in July of 2009 to study, sketch and photograph the endangered Argali, the world's largest mountain sheep. On-going research on the Argali is being carried out by Dr. Richard Reading of the Denver Zoological Foundation, which is collaborating with the expedition and providing access to field expertise and infrastructure.

Dr. Reading will also be using their findings to work with local people to try to induce changes in livestock husbandry practices that will benefit Argali. This has inspired Susan to use the arts to promote conservation in places like Ikh Nartiin Chuluu. To that end, in addition to her studies, sketches and photography, Susan will be helping the local herder women set up a crafts cooperative so that they have the opportunity to realize a revenue stream from the existence of the reserve, its visitors and the on-going presence of research volunteers.

As an artist providing both financial and business expertise, Susan is in a unique position to do this work. Susan has herder friends now at Ikh Nart and has long-term plans to be involved in an on-going way with the people and unique place she has come to care about.
