SPECIES EXTINCTION IN URBAN HABITATS







This is a project exploring the issue of Insect Extinction in Urban Habitats. To help with this issue, I focused on how Children can contribute to it. Therefore I created a Seed Trail, focusing on the pollinating insects in particular, and the flowers that are needed for attracting each of them. I created an individual seed packet for each Pollinating Insect, including a fun fact for each of them on the reverse side. This is completed with hand sewn seed packets, that slide out of them, made from an environmentaly friendly fabric. These ten packets are then contained in a  hand-sewn bag. The idea is Children match the Insects up to Illustrations engraved onto wooden signs around the park, to plant these seeds.
