frog utopia

This work is a proof of concept to show that individual “citizen scientists” are capable of caring for endangered species using retrofit everyday artifacts. This climate controlled and bio-secure tank can only hold a few adult frogs and since it does not contain standing water the frogs will not breed. Building on the spirit of Do-It-Yourself Biology, a grassroots scientific movement, this installation is meant to illustrate the possibilities of increasing the carrying capacity of the amphibian conservation network amidst a large scale mass extinction event.
