A Northern Bald Ibis or Waldrapp by Pat Swain. All Rights Reserved. This series, ‘Global Warming: Unlikely Water Animals’, is an exploration of ‘misplaced’ non-water animals in rising coastal shorelines due to global warming. It brings to question if this is merely a visit or their new habitat. The backdrop of these coastlines (at times threatening) emphasizes the vulnerability and mortality of these creatures confronting a new and impossible environment. The animals range from endangered, wild, farm and some with disabilities.
