Endangered by Tamara Dean

Tamara Dean's Endangered series is a reframing of the notion of ourselves as human beings - mammals in a sensitive ecosystem, as vulnerable to the same forces of climate change as every other living creature.

"This series is particularly important to me as it speaks directly to my most fundamental concerns and values.... my love for the environment and my deep concern for our planet. Biologists predict that if we continue carrying on the way we are then by the end of this century 50% of species living today will face extinction. And humans are not immune. To see ourselves as different and separate to the ecology and ecosystem of our planet is leaving humanity unprepared for the world we are currently shaping."        – Tamara Dean
