Nature's Struggle: Survival & Extinction
Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum, Chicago
22 March 2014—19 October 2014

I provided consulting services for the development of Nature's Struggle, an exhibition that explores the role of humans in the survival and extinction of other species. The show marks the 100th anniversary of the extinction of the passenger pigeon (Ectopistes migratorius) and aims to empower museum visitors to conserve and protect the world's remaining biodiversity.

A complimentary outdoor exhibition, The Lost Bird Project, features sculptures by artist Todd McGrain through 2016.
