Jellyfish- A Blue and Green Study, Finalist in the 202O Waterhouse Natural Science Award
Scientists suggest we are heading towards an unprecedented sixth age of extinction. The ramifications of climate change are creating diminishing animal populations on an unprecedented scale. Jellyfish, on the other hand, are the ultimate survivors, with many species thriving across the planet. As greenhouse gases trap heat on the planet, oceans are heating up. Unlike most sea creatures, jellyfish thrive in warmer water. What’s more, their natural predators, including fish, turtles and sharks, are being overfished by humans. I create jellyfish from fishing line to weave this tragic tale of sea life in the Anthropocene.
