The Mass Audubon Society's Pleasant Valley Wildlife Sanctuary visited our Mosaics class to teach us about endangered species, legislation, and conservation. We also learned from an ornithologist from the National Geographic's Explorer Classroom about global efforts to prevent extinction of wildlife. Our class created mosaics of local, endangered birds using traditional materials and techniques. We cast them to look like ancient fragments as a metaphor for potential loss and preservation. We will use our work as part of a fundraiser for PVWS.
