No Longer There: The Creatures That Left Too Soon is an icon series portraying recently extinct animals in an effort to raise awareness. What makes these referents so special is that all of them were killed off either partly or entirely due to human intervention.
The research for No Longer There never seemed to stop, as I was constantly uncovering new facts about each of the animals and how some in particular were brutally wiped out by a blatant disregard for the species. These tidbits of information made their appearances and personalities even more striking.
Ali Pflaumer also made a great auk icon based the standards I established for this series, which can be found in the process document below.
