Abstract/Artist's Statement

Is it possible to construct wilderness? To teach a bird to be wild? Study of the whooping crane (Grus americana) conservation effort shows how intrepid conservationists have worked to prevent this iconic species’ extinction. From the early years of the American conservation movement to the looming threat of climate change, this project attempts to track the ways care and control have influenced this endeavor in ‘saving’ this species, and examines these conservation practices from a multispecies perspective.
