Art.Science.Gallery. is proud to announce the opening of In Danger (or, you should really, really give a shit), an exhibition that seeks to highlight the alarming rate of species decline and extinction worldwide, caused directly and indirectly by human impacts, and what we can do about it. Today’s extinction rate is estimated to be between 1,000 and 10,000 times higher than the natural extinction rate, with an estimated 150-200 species going extinct every 24 hours!

The artworks in this exhibition tell the story of and conservation science about plants, animals and fungi on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species, in the Critically Endangered (CE) category.
