May 2018: Bearded Vulture

Bearded Vulture

Bearded Vulture (Gypaetus barbatus)

It’s May 1st, which marks FaunaFocus’ 1-Year Anniversary! This month, FaunaFocus will feature the bearded vulture . This extremely large, bearded bird has a wide range across Africa, Asia, and Europe, and is listed as “Near Threatened” by the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.



Create art inspired by the bearded vulture and share it in the FaunaFocus Discord Server or on social media with #faunafocus. Learn about more ways to get involved with FaunaFocus!



This month’s FaunaFridays will take place on May 11th, with Sketch Studies, and May 25th, with a CreateAlong teaching participants to use water-soluble wax pastels to create a colorful, abstract representation of a bearded vulture.



Entries for this month’s Free-For-All are due at 12:00pm (Noon) CDT on Tuesday, May 29th and will be critiqued on the FaunaFocus Twitch Stream Team at 9:00pm CDT on Wednesday, May 30th. FaunaFocus needs 2 guest judges! If interested, apply to judge the Free-For-All.
