Ocelot of the Kayapo Tribe by Karson Schenk. All Rights Reserved. Endangered animals wear traditional pieces of clothing from dying indigenous cultures of the same region across the globe. Symbolizing the correlation between the decline of animal species and human culture in an increasingly influenced and exploited world. With encroaching influence and destruction of land indigenous peoples and animal species face serious threats. I believe each of these groups are an integral part of our world, and losing either would be a shame. As a society, it is our duty to fight to protect these societies and fragile species.
