SONSI member Lori Dunn has a scratchboard piece in the 52nd Annual Exhibit of the Society of Animal Artists, which will be held this year in the Hiram Blauvelt Museum in New Jersey from Sept to Dec 2012.

“Born This Way.” Lori Dunn, scratchboard.

While I’m not a Lady Gaga fan or anything, I did rip off the title of one of her songs to make a point. If society is supposed to be accepting of humans of all races, sizes… and lifestyles, why can’t we be accepting of all forms of animal life as well? Reptiles have gotten a bad rap since the beginning of mankind…. This little hatchling crocodile, if it makes it to adulthood, will face a life of fear and persecution from humans ignorant to its real beauty and importance on our planet.
