What We Neglect

Biodiversity is on a severe and fast decline , but we seem to neither comprehend nor see how fast this decline is. Design’s role to help biodiversity is to expose this information in a compelling way, as well as offer solutions that can start with directly affecting and educating the viewer.
My voice in the problem of biodiversity, is different, however. My input is that what we neglect, comes back to us. The environmental problems we neglect now will come back to bite us in the near future, and we won't be able to recover. This is an exosition of information and how you personally will be affected. As of now, I've created an interactive data visualization that presents current threatened species declared by the iucn, and their trends globally.

The Exhibition

I brought it all together by fusing print and interaction, sticking to the basics and letting the research speak. I also created take-away post cards that gave visitors information on local species, such as the honey bee.
