Swift Fox - Acrylic Wall Art
This product is unavailable
The Swift fox is North America’s smallest canine species. It is is about the size of a house cat and weighs up to three kilograms.
In Canada, swift foxes are now found in only a small area of prairie grasslands in southern Alberta and Saskatchewan. More than 70 per cent of Canada’s native prairie grasslands have been lost, and they are continuing to disappear. The protection of these grasslands is critical to the survival of the swift fox and other species that depend on this habitat.
The photograph places the life-size foxes amidst metal scraps at a metal recycle facility.

The Swift Fox was extirpated, but populations surveyed in 2000-2001 tripled because of the re-introduction program. Ability to maintain population is uncertain, but recent census data is encouraging. Designated as “Endangered” under the Wildlife Act.
