Ames has brought together an assortment of animals whose numbers are threatened, including classic favorites such as the giant panda, the humpback whale, and the Asian elephant.

Ames's drawing method has proven successful for children and adults of all ages over the past 40 years. The 31 books in the Draw 50 series have sold more than three million copies and have shown artists, from the beginner to advanced levels, how to draw everything from animals to airplanes.
