From Art.Science.Gallery.:

We are seeking submissions of artworks for In Danger (or, you should really, really give a shit), a group art exhibition about critically endangered species. This exhibition seeks to highlight the alarming rate of species decline and extinction worldwide, caused directly and indirectly by human impacts, and what we can do about it. Today’s extinction rate is estimated to be between 1,000 and 10,000 times higher than the natural extinction rate, with an estimated 150-200 species going extinct every 24 hours! This is the highest rate of biodiversity loss since the dinosaurs went extinct 65 million years ago, and is now being called the 6th Mass Extinction or the Anthropocene Extinction. We are seeking artworks that help tell the story and conservation science about plants, animals and fungi on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species, in the Critically Endangered (CE) category. This exhibit has three main goals: 1) Visualize the immediacy and magnitude of CE species issues, 2) Remember extinct species through an altar of remembrance. 3) Motivate visitors to take action through education, personal behavior, and advocacy.
