We were asked by Mutabi to spread the word. It's not solely mustelid-related, but it's for a good cause and supports both artists, their work and nature.

This is a charity art project raising money for animal welfare and artists from all over the world are  invited to draw individual pictures and donate revenue to protect the environment.


Hey folks!

Just one week is left and then the next Naturama Project will start with the hedgehog!

So here is the blog to invite artists for the next round.

If you are interested in joining an international artproject to help your favourite animals
or if you want to invite and inform some of your friends about Naturama,
please feel free to use the text below:

Since 2011 each year we invite artists from all over the world.
Each artist is able to offer a kind of personal commission (traditional, digital artwork, crafts, music, lyric, as you wish)
and the money, we collect during the project, which runs about 10 month, will be donated COMPLETELY to different environmental organisations
for wolves,
for tigers,
for birds of prey,
for snow-leopards,
for otters,
for pets,
for sharks,
for bats
and this year new for hedgehogs!

In the last years all in all the donated more than 13.100 Euro for nature and we will work for even more success!

Here you can see all the great artwork, that was created in the last years:… .
So, if you want to be a part of this great teamwork or have any questions, just write a comment below, write a note
or contact the team at:

Best greetings,
please share and spread our project to the world!

Your Mutabi!

About Us

"Mustelidae (from Latin mustela, weasel), commonly referred to as the weasel family, are a family of carnivorous mammals.

The Mustelidae in general are phylogenetically relatively primitive and so were difficult to classify until genetic evidence started to become available. The increasing availability of such evidence may well result in some members of the family being moved to their own separate families, as has already happened with the skunks, previously considered to be members of the mustelid family.

Mustelids vary greatly in size and behavior. The least weasel is not much larger than a mouse. At the other end of the scale, giant otter can measure up to 2.4 metres (7.9 ft) in total length and sea otters can exceed 45 kilograms (99 lb). The wolverine can crush bones as thick as the femur of a moose to get at the marrow, and has been seen attempting to drive bears away from its kill. The sea otter uses rocks to break open shellfish to eat. The marten is largely arboreal, while the badger digs extensive networks of tunnels, called setts. Some mustelids have been domesticated. The ferret and the tayra are kept as pets (although the tayra requires a Dangerous Wild Animals licence in the UK), or as working animals for hunting or vermin control. Others have been important in the fur trade. The mink is often raised for its fur.

As well as the most species-rich family in the order Carnivora, mustelidae is one of the oldest. Mustelid-like forms first appeared about 40 million years ago in the Oligocene epoch, roughly coinciding with the appearance of rodents. The direct ancestors of the modern mustelids first appeared about 15 million years ago.

-Edited excerpt from Wikipedia

Mustelids include weasels, otters, minks, martens, wolverines, polecats, ferrets, grisons, and badgers. Skunks were somewhat recently removed from the family Mustelidae, but are acceptable in submissions.

You're very welcome. You got the sleek weasel anatomy just right in this piece, and I thank you for including one in a piece! Your work is always so atmospheric, rough and expressive, the characters are well developed and you manage to bring the viewer directly to the story or moment.

Ah thanks so much! That really is awesome to hear c: Characters and atmosphere are something I really enjoy. I enjoyed the opportunity to draw a weasel too!

Wow, I'm so excited ^O^ This is my first group! How nice to find other fellow mustelidae lovers. Hello!

Hi there! It's always a pleasure to meet fellow mustelid enthusiasts, and this group and ''Fuzzy-freaks'' are the best places to be if you want to learn about all the species within this family, which also happens to be the largest within Carnivora. We also support ferrets and other domesticated mustelids. 

Thank you so much for joining, and we hope you'll enjoy your stay. : )
