This interactive exhibition of endangered species is simply breathtaking

In Pieces

With more natural habitats being exploited for their resources on our planet, many species are in danger of extinction. To draw attention to this issue, designer Bryan James crafted a gorgeous interactive exhibition of 30 fascinating animals facing extinction, using morphing polygons.

In Pieces beautifully depicts rare creatures like the pygmy three-toed sloth, the Somali ostrich, the Brazilian armadillo and Kemp’s Ridley turtle with subtle animations as well as information on the threat to each species, visualized stats and links to preservation efforts to protect them.


James designed the entire project using CSS, so it works on Webkit-powered browsers on desktops and mobile devices.

You can also download free wallpapers of each animal for your desktop, tablet and phone. There’s also a poster available for $32 (€30) featuring all the animals from the project; all profits go to Evolutionarily Distinct & Globally Endangered, a worldwide conservation initiative for threatened species.
