Endangered Species: Artists on the Front Line of Biodiversity highlights sixty artists who celebrate biodiversity's beauty, interpret natural and human-induced extinctions, and focus on endangered species from diverse ecosystems. It includes the work of artists who spotlight human actions threatening biodiversity alongside art projects that revitalize habitats and reconnect people to the natural world.

Endangered Species surveys a wide range of approaches and media used by artists spanning the nineteenth through twenty-first centuries. By tracing links between contemporary and earlier artists, it reveals continuity within a rich cultural tradition of engagement with nature conservation. Juxtaposing the history of art and natural science, Endangered Species explores artists' pivotal role in raising awareness about biodiversity's importance.

Barbara C. Matilsky is curator of art at the Whatcom Museum, Bellingham, Washington. She is the author of numerous books, including Vanishing Ice: Alpine and Polar Landscapes in Art, 1775?2012 and Fragile Ecologies: Contemporary Artists' Interpretations and Solutions.
