An internationally acclaimed conservation artist in Hawaii, endangerment/extinction capitol of the world, Calley ONeill is a powerful passionate voice for endangered species and ecosystems. Her passion is to ignite our innate love of life and the actions required to preserve nature and create a healthy future. Calley had the honor of collaborating for five years with abstract expressionist, RAMA the elephant.

As the featured artist for the IUCN WORLD CONSERVATION CONGRESS 2016, Calley was honored to present her leading edge interspecies exhibition in a 10,000 SF exhibition space outside the General Assembly for 10,000 conservation leaders from 192 countries. This was the most important summit on nature ever convened, and the first time in IUCN's 70-year history that it was hosted by the US. The International Union for Conservation of Nature is the world's leading authority on the status of the natural world. THE RAMA EXHIBITION WORLD PREMIERE was a smashing success!
