About the Artist

Molly Schafer is an artist, illustrator, and co-founder of ESPP. She is often guilty of personifying her animal subjects but found the facial expression of the Galapagos penguin unreadable and therefore immensely intriguing.  Her work has been exhibited nationally, current and upcoming exhibitions include the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum and the Indianapolis Museum of Contemporary Art.

About the Species

Galápagos penguin (Spheniscus mendiculus)

Population in the wild: >1500
Print Edition limited to: 1500
Population In Captivity: unknown
Threatened by: The most serious threat to the Galápagos penguins is climate change. The increasing frequency and severity of El Niños reduces upwelling and food availability for penguins and other seabirds. The 1982-1983 ENSO resulted in the catastrophic loss of 77 percent of the Galapagos penguin population through starvation. 
Habitat: Nests in cracks and caves in island lava flows. Feeds in cool waters just off-shore.
