When the Funnel Beaker people built their hunebeds in 3500 B.C., none of the 360 animals featured in “Endangered World: Life Wall” were in peril. Because of global climate change, most are threatened with extinction by the century’s end. Human survival is ultimately dependent on the preservation of the planet’s biodiversity.
This work invites viewers to “adopt” these endangered animals and become engaged in conservation efforts. For more information, please click here.
