WORLD WILDLIFE DAY 2019

MARCH 3, 2019

#LifeBelowWater

 

What an incredible event. With support from The School For Field Studies and Paññāsāstra University of Cambodia, we built a massive Southern river terrapin (Batagur afinis) our of plastic bottle waste. This was made from 50 kg of plastic waste, the same amount discard in Siem Reap every 30 minutes. A video showing the construction of this art piece will go live soon to help spread a message about plastic waste reduction to millions of people across Cambodia.
