From the Designer:
"Who doesn't love the whimsical little echidna?
I certainly do!
My hand drawn designs, for the lovely 'Incredible Echidna' scarf, celebrate this amazing and intriguing creature. Echidnas and their equally unique counterpart, the platypus, are the world's only monotremes (egg-laying mammals). The main centre panel of this scarf design features my illustration of a short beaked echidna peering over a mound looking for ants to eat.
The short-beaked echidna is not readily seen in the wild because of its quiet, reclusive nature. It is not currently endangered, but your purchase of this scarf will contribute to supporting* the work of the Australian Wildlife Conservancy in protecting and conserving Australia's amazing, 'megadiverse' native species."
DISCLAIMER: IN PHOTOGRAPHING IMAGES FOR THE GALLERY, EVERY EFFORT HAS BEEN MADE TO DEPICT THE SCARVES AS THEY APPEAR IN REAL LIFE, BUT ACTUAL COLOURS IN SOME PRODUCTS MAY HAVE VERY SLIGHT VARIATIONS IN INTENSITY FROM THOSE PICTURED (EG. MAY BE VERY SLIGHTLY DARKER, OR LIGHTER)
LITTLE NATIVES® MASCOT - THE SLEEPING KOALA.
The name Little Natives® was inspired by native Australian animals, birds, plants and sea life. This collection features designs created from my original hand-illustrated artworks.
Many Australian animals and birds are threatened with extinction. Sales of Little Natives®products contribute $ to various non-profits working to support and protect our precious native animals and birds. Details are included in product descriptions.
Thank you, Maryann Hine.
