Fragile Legacy is a multimedia fusion of art, science, and history. The project is designed to expand participation in conservation efforts worldwide, inspiring people in all disciplines to imagine and work toward a sustainable future. 19th and early 20th Century naturalist art is used to explore environmental changes since the creation of these works. The projectâ€™s objective is to rekindle the optimism and passion for natural history that characterized the time in which the art was created. The message of the project is that human ingenuity, coupled with the knowledge and tools gained in the last 150 years, can and must be employed to find solutions to the environmental problems that we inadvertently made for ourselves. Fragile Legacy is both a celebration of our unique ability to appreciate, understand and interpret nature, and a â€œcall to armsâ€ for us all to mobilize to shape a sustainable future.
