Wildlife Trade Art & Science exhibition - almost ready!

The goal of “Wildlife Trade Art & Science” is to consider the role of global wildlife trade in species extinction and to empower the viewing public to take part in conservation. Organized by Creature Conserve, the exhibition features work by artists studying the impact of global trade on endangered species. Participating artists interviewed experts, including biologists, ecologists, veterinarians, park rangers, zookeepers, sanctuary managers, and policy-makers with the international Fund for Animal Welfare, in creating highly personal, emotionally-charged, artwork that is informed by the facts.

Special thanks to CC Board member Christina Ward and her sister Julie Banks who drove the works from Rhode Island to Wyoming, and then helped with installation. 

During their travels across country, Christina and Julie introduced Percival Pangolin to as many people as they could find.
