Inspired and in support of REMEMBRANCE DAY FOR LOST SPECIES, which happens on NOVEMBER 30TH every year.

“People explore the stories of extinct and critically endangered species, cultures, lifeways, and ecological communities. Whilst emphasising that these losses are rooted in violent and discriminatory governing practices, the day provides an opportunity for participants to make or renew commitments to all who remain, and to develop creative and practical solutions.

Remembrance Day for Lost Species honours diverse experiences and practices associated with enduring and witnessing the loss of cultural and biological diversity. Participate in any way you choose – the annual theme can provide inspiration. Previous events have taken many forms including art projects, processions, tree planting, rituals and more.”
