For ninety thousand Kenyans, Lake Turkana is a source of power and identity. Projects upstream, however, threaten to dry out the lake, and are turning the region into a dust bowl.

+Peter van Rens, my place of birth is also in the same boat. I don't understand the lack of motivation to implement solutions that have been know for a while. I understand the problem is financial, but I believe, budgets and understanding priority are overdue, and people need to stop responding as large sized children. The time for glutinous behaviour is at an end. The abundant resources are not so abundant anymore. I'm actually insulted to be selling a human solution to help others.

Very nice photo and big cat. Big cats have a right to life also as and every living creature in the world, especially since disappearing as a species due to loss of habitat and food. Big cats are carnivores, but they are scavengers of nature, because they catch the weak and sick animals that have as their prey.

Watch: "The amazing thing about taxidermy is that you get to make the animal exactly the way it was in nature. My approach is slightly different," says Brooklyn-based artist Kate Clark.

Wonderful to re-purpose damaged skins into art.
Ms. Clark's vision is beautiful. She has found a compelling relationship that materializes childhood fantasies of connecting with wildlife. I am drawn to the human-ness in her creations and in turn, see the animal-ness in humans.
