The Posters Project
Classroom posters introduce children to the natural wonders (ecosystems and lemurs). As much of the world hears Madagascar is otherworldly, we believe children here should know about their unique biogeography.
NATURAL WONDERS OF MADAGASCAR
Since children we spoke to had never seen or heard about the island’s ecosystems, we design materials with realistic yet enchanting watercolor styles to showcase ecosystems. In the style of a classic children’s book, hidden gems of the country’s biogeography are presented with a developmental lens for map POV.
A LEMUR STORY
A second project will show how the diverse roles of lemurs impact the island’s ecosystem, using their niche variation to illustrate that diverse characteristics can contribute to living sustainably in complex environments.
