Coexisting with Urban Wildlife
[ objective ]
The objective is to research, investigate and develop a solution to a specific problem that I would like to resolve. Create visual communications that convey appropriate messages and ideas to address the problem through a design process.
[ approach ]
As California’s population continues to grow, it gradually encroaches on the wildlife habitat. Some wildlife can survive in the human habitat because they easily find food, water, shelter, and a place to raise their young. However, people see the animals as a nuisance. They try to trap and relocate them but it’s an ineffective and inhumane solution. Moreover, growing human populations overlap wildlife habitats, and this can cause an accident from colliding with wildlife. For the solution, I want to encourage people to increase their understanding of urban wildlife’s natural habitats, and reduce injury and death to humans and animals. To get deeper insights, I held an event and invited people to engage in a conversation about my topic.
