SEA COWS

Image Size: 10" x 6" x 13" ()

Over the years, Wyland has developed a close affinity for the endangered Florida manatee. In "Sea Cows," he honors the gentle spirit of one of these beautiful creatures as it swims peacefully with her calf. "The manatees have become increasingly endangered due to polluted water, loss of habitat and propellers from small boats," Wyland says. "Without a total commitment from man, they are surely to follow other extinct species. People are becoming more aware of the situation, especially in Florida, but there’s still a lot of work to do."
