We’re sadly entering a new age of animal extinction, this one part of the epoch called the Anthropocene, which is primarily caused by us – humans.
As we grapple with the huge issues of climate change and resource scarcity, we also are starting to lose animal species at an alarming rate.
Researched and designed by Braća Burazeri, Duck Knees, and NeoMam Studios, this beautiful illustrated collection shows which species is most endangered in each of the USA’s 50 states. It’s an exhaustive and also tragic list, with animals ranging from the smallest mouse, to the biggest whale. Each lovingly illustrated animal is accompanied by an informative blurb about their habitat, and their remaining numbers. Via Behance:
From the Shenandoah Salamander to the Least Tern to the Mount Charleston Blue Butterfly, we find the illustrations beautiful and special, highlighting their plight.
