Exhibit at the Santa Cruz Natural History Museum showcasing endangered species of the central coast of California. Will also feature family programs.
The aim of this project is to create a photographic exhibit that will call attention to the endangered species native to the Central Coast of California, a biologically diverse area threatened by over-development. The exhibit will feature 30 fine prints of the endangered species which will be grouped around six interpretive panels. The project also includes producing a range of educational programs: a lecture series or panel discussion, a Saturday program for families, and docent-led tours of the exhibit for elementary-age students. I will mount the exhibit at the Santa Cruz Museum of Natural History, which has agreed to provide the educational programming related to the theme of the exhibit. That programming will include steps each visitor can take to help preserve these species. Since the Museum's permanent exhibit focuses on the diverse habitats found on the central coast --shoreline, sandhills, chaparral, redwood forest--- and the animals that make their homes here, it is the perfect venue for encouraging active conservation of those habitats and species.
I have been photographing for this project for over two years now and have had many amazing experiences with these animals. I would now like to share them with you through the exhibit. The money raised here will pay directly for the manufacturing of the actual exhibit including the fine prints and interpretive panels.
In terms of the rewards if there is something else you strongly desire instead of the given rewards shoot me an email and we can probably arrange something.
