This exhibition deals with the plight of animals and ecosystems in their struggle with humans. Living off of a consumer based, human-centric treatment of the planet for decades. We are now faced with real dilemmas affecting our basic health and well-being. Wild ecosystems and animals provide a buffer for human health. Unregulated abuse, habitat fragmentation, and urban sprawl are among the many problems that are fuelling extreme weather patterns, climate change, unprecedented species extinction rates, and an increasing rise of infectious disease prevalence. The more animals that go extinct, the faster our problems increase. This artwork highlights endangered [or vulnerable] species that are struggling to survive.
