Off-road vehicles threaten Tesla Park's amphibians
California State Parks wants to open thousands of acres of critical amphibian habitat to off-road vehicles at Tesla Park. As you can see on the graph below, amphibians have low survival rates in areas with off-road vehicles (OHV's), so we need to make sure the state does not use taxpayer funds to destroy amphibian habitat. Stay tuned for a petition we are creating, and please learn more at: http://www.teslapark.org

On November 13th, I gave a presentation on amphibian conservation and the importance of art in the environmental conservation movement to the students of the School of Visual Arts' Nature and Technology Lab "Introduction to Bioart" class in New York City. On top of amphibians, we also discussed pesticides on apples and genetically modified corn.
