This audio piece tells the story of the ongoing decline and extinction of Hawai'i's incredible land snails, exploring the diverse ways in which these often overlooked creatures matter for local people and their environments.
The sea is swallowing up coastline after coastline, until it reaches your special beach, then in the blink of an eye it is gone. Just like the Australian coastline, many other coastlines around the world are experiencing erosion.
Among Hawaii's species extinctions since the early 19th century are twelve specialist nectar-eating, pollinating birds. By gathering images of all twelve, and their stories, this work seeks to generate a sense of this loss.
