Wildlife Calendar

Artist Eric Zobel Helps Area Nonprofits

The holidays are a time for helping those whom fortune has not favored. Sadly, animals often fall into that category. Doing his part for the critters, Santa Barbara graphic designer Eric Zobel each year creates a desk calendar for purchase, the proceeds of which go to an area wildlife nonprofit. His designs are clean and his cartoon drawings delightful. For 2014, Zobel chose Eyes in the Sky, a raptor education program founded by Gabriele Drozdowski. The rescued and rehabilitated birds at EITS suffered injuries that prevent them from returning to the wild; now they serve as education ambassadors to teach the public about the amazing feathered creatures. To purchase a Santa Barbara Wildlife 2014 Calendar, go to For more information about EITS, call 259-1446 or visit
