Did anyone check out this article in the NY Times today? Really incredible artwork by Isabella Kirkland. From the Times:
"The six paintings, each of which took about a year to create, memorialize species that have vanished from the planet during the ascent of humans; those that are finding new niches as humans spread plants and animals around the globe; those collected or harvested illegally or too aggressively; American species in decline; and — most hopefully — animals and plants that were thought to be extinct, or on the brink of vanishing, but have come back."
For anyone who cares about the environment and the plight of animals this is really an amazing body of work.
