Ten thousand species extent per year. This is the sad reality, and things aren’t getting better… Maybe you saw the « only ten years challenge you fucking need to hear about » published by Greenpeace to sound the alarm about the dramatic environmental situation that is taking place nowadays. Global warming, pollution, deforestation, toxic products and so on are the causes of the acceleration of the extinction of animals. Human’s irresponsible way of life deprived animals of a decent environment to live in. Hunt, fishing, intensive farming and poaching are also threats to the survival of species.
In 40 years, 60% of animal species disappeared. Despite the severity of the situation, it seems that the animal cause isn’t on the agenda for Governments that prefer to focus on profit and mass production. Fortunately, art is a wonderful way to denounce situations, spread messages and fight for causes, and nobody can prevent the artists from expressing themselves and stand for a good cause.
