Gary Larson's 2007 Calendar: Benefitting Conservation International

After making a career out of drawing elephants, wildebeest, frogs, bears, horses, salmon, and other wildlife, cartoonist Gary Larson is working to help end the destruction being wrought upon these animals and their habitats. Though he retired from cartooning 11 years ago, and from greatest hits calendars in 2002, he's come out of retirement this year to release a page-a-day calendar of some of his greatest hits; all of his earnings from the 3 million calendars printed, (about $2 million) will go to Conservation International to help end the illegal wildlife trade in Asia. Larson, who worked for the Humane Society as a cruelty investigator before becoming a syndicated cartoonist, says that protecting wildlife is "at the top of my list." Perhaps his calendar will be at the top of yours this holiday season. It's available at Amazon and other fine booksellers. ::USA Today via ::Gristmill
