Crocodiles on Elms Avenue – Animal Thanet 2019

A haul-out of Nile Crocodiles – Crocodylus niloticus on Elms Avenue, Ramsgate.

These images are part of the ongoing Animal Thanet project and installation / performance, which considers & reflects wider concerns I have for the  natural world, particularly focussed on the lives of its wild animals, conservation, loss of habitat, diminishing numbers, poaching, trophy hunting, extinction and callous exploitation, which holds a mirror to our humanity. We may soon only have plastic versions of our wild neighbours to play with. The last decade has witnessed the slow & horrible realisation that our negative impact on the planet and particularly our plastic pollution of almost every environment, is a real-time catastrophe for the world around us.
