is a series of five illustrations based on ecological collapsed areas found within the Americas.
The series simply portrays endangered species and their symbiotic partners in their local, natural environment. Each illustration depicts five different regions where symbiotic relationships are at stake and are currently suffering from habitat loss.
The project’s purpose very much focuses on empathy and awareness of the symbiotic relationships found between endangered species in geographical locations which are dear to me.
And lastly, my thesis has connotations of activism, human consumerism, interconnectedness, biodiversity, climate change, and habitat + species loss.
