Endangered Species Act Mural Series

In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Endangered Species Act, Endangered Species Coalition Members are collaborating to create a series of murals throughout the US. These murals will spotlight regional ecological and cultural diversity within the US by highlighting plants and animals that are protected by the Endangered Species Act. Species that are currently listed and in danger of extinction will be featured as well as some species who have recovered thanks to this landmark legislation.
