Instead of coexisting with wildlife we create borders to divide us from them. Every year designated wild space gets smaller and smaller. This space isn’t enough, and when animals try to come back, we kill them. If we keep expanding over what is in our way, there will be nothing left. So what if that happens,
so what if we eliminate
we would still need these animal’s function to maintain the ecosystem. we would have to create products to do their job.
an insect, small mammal, and predator.
Lawn care is a line of products that replaces an animal from each level of the food chain.
The idea of this project is to teach people that these animals are important. Not just to their local ecosystems, but in how people associate themselves with wildlife. This needs to start locally in our yards, neighborhoods, and homes.
we need to teach the next generation that wildlife isn’t
disposable, that it has value.
This project hopes to challenge the common practice of exterminating “pest” species that are valuable to the ecosystem but are viewed as expendable to humans
As human populations continue to expand into the natural world, the natural world is forced to make cities their new habitat.
today only 3% of the world’s terrestrial bio-mass is wildlife. so this is the new wild. this is what’s left.
how can you create empathy for
rainforests across the world, when we are destroying ecosystems in our own
Most of the world is living in suburban and urban cities, and most wildlife people interact in their lifetime are local suburban animals found in these areas. These animals are considered disposable and are killed in the millions every year for being “pests.”
