My Environment Year 7
Year 7 Zoo experience
Mrs Marks!
Class 7.3
“Only when the last of the animals, horns, tusks, skin and bones are sold will mankind
realise that money can never bring back our wildlife” Wild at Heart
We have used the theme endangered to illustrate on our Rhino. The rhino features
more than just a rhino, it also features the aspects of all endangered animals and
what we are doing to kill but also help them. It represents all the animal killings and
how they are tortured and slaughtered.
The above quote runs along the spine of the Rhino and is at the heart of our explored
theme of endangerment. Our Rhino is red at the back, fading to white (the head and
horn) representing the life or blood running out of all endangered animals. Each
student approached their segment with a factor that contributes to the endangerment
of animals, including poaching, loss of habitat, cruelty and the souvenir trade. They
have used powerful quotes and scientific data collected in visual art class, science,
english and while visiting the zoo.
The head of our Rhino features coins from around the world representing the
commercial spending that is driving the continued slaughter and butchery of these
amazing animals. Nails have been driven into the wood, wire wrapped around, fabric,
paint and collage applied to the bones portraying a multi faceted picture of life as an
endangered animal living today.
