Product Description


Portrayals of flamingos can be found in many different cultures. For example, Ancient Egyptians believed flamingos were a representation of the sun god Ra, and would often include images of them in their art. Similarly, flamingos are a central figure in the culture of Peru. Thankfully, we don’t have to rely on art to preserve the legacy of the flamingo, as they are classified as a species of least concern by the IUCN!
