What is Missing? by Maya Lin

What is missing? - A focus on species and places that have gone missing within our lifetime. Approximately every 20 minutes, we witness the disappearance of a distinct living species of plant or animal. This memorial will not only make us aware of the enormous loss of species but also to give us direction and hope on what can be done to help. Thought provoking and inspiring.
