Artist Statement: Endangered Earth

We may be in the midst of one of the six largest extinctions of life on earth in the 4.5 billion year history of the planet and the one extinction caused by man.  To avoid this catastrophe we need to work to reverse the causes of climate change and take care of the habitats of the species with which we share the earth. Some of the species pictured on the globe have been brought back from the brink of extinction.  Can we do this with the rest of them?
