The Amazon river dolphin (Inia geoffrensis), also known as the boto, bufeo or pink river dolphin, is a species of toothed whale classified in the family Iniidae.
In 2008, this species was ranked by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) as being data deficient, due to the uncertainty regarding its population trends and the impact of threats. While hunting is a major threat, in recent decades greater impacts on population have been due to the loss of habitat and inadvertent entanglement in fishing lines.
BRAZIL ART - SAUDADE
10% goes towards a Reforestation Project in Brazil
"Saudade" is a show inspired by the artist’s home country: Brazil. For this show, Fer has decided to share the beauty of Brazil in all its bold colors and vibrant energy. The art was displayed in September 2019, at the Lowcountry Artists Gallery.
The word “Saudade” is a unique Portuguese word with no direct translation in any other language. In Portuguese, it’s translated as the feeling of missing or longing for something one is fond of.
