About the piece:
Grevy’s zebra numbers are in crisis, with only around 3,000 individuals remaining in the wild after an 80% decline in the 1970s. In the last two decades conservation efforts have increased significantly, giving hope for species recovery, yet a number of very real threats still remain, such as habitat loss. In this artwork, ‘Turn from Extinction’, Halszka aims to portray the vulnerability of the existence of a species. The Grevy’s zebra population is at a point where it is attempting to re-emerge from near disappearance. There is hope, so long as threats are kept at bay.
