The project was an attempt to engage children by raising awareness about endangered species of plants and animals; those that face the risk of extinction, often threatened by changing environmental or predation parameters. Through simple playful means such as joining-the-dots or colouring, the animal forms on the 12 blackboard panels reveal and conceal as the children draw and erase them. By fading in and out of focus they remind us of how we can be active contributors in either destroying or restoring our immediate habitat.
