Wildlife Alive


To most artists, the environment, nature, and wildlife are very important and inspirational. The newest edition to the obsolete law book series, this painting incorporates a Supreme Court decision from 1976 about the overkill and depletion of many animal species in California. This was just four years after the federal government banned the use of DDT as a pesticide because of its serious impact on wildlife, such as bald eagles which faced near extinction in California.
