Street Artists Join Forces to Raise Awareness on Endangered Species

Endangered 13 is a curated mural project to raise awareness of endangered species. Produced by artist Louis Masai and Human Nature (an environmental art platform that believes art can change people), the project brings together 13 talented artists to paint 12 murals onto a 120 metre long stretch of railway arches close to Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park.

Each of the murals represents a threatened animal species, including an Orangutan, Rhino, Polar Bear, Tiger, Bees and Coral Reef among others.

According to the International Union of Conservation of Nature (IUCN), there are currently 23,250 species threatened with extinction (critically endangered, endangered or vulnerable) worldwide. The IUCN publishes the Red List of Threatened Species which provides information and analyses on the status, trends and threats to species in order to inform and catalyse action for biodiversity conservation.

The Endangered 13 project is open to the public for viewing at Ackroyd Drive, Tower Hamlets, London E34 JY.

Here’s some pictures of the murals that you will get to view. Worth a visit!
