Have you had a chance to check out Biodiversity Barbados’ Virtual Art Exhibition?

The Ministry of Environment is delighted to once again be working with artists in Barbados to highlight biodiversity and the environment on International Day for Biological Diversity (IDB).  IDB was celebrated on Sunday May 22nd under the theme is ‘Building a Shared Future for All Life’ with the Ministry’s second annual Virtual Art Exhibition.  This year’s Art Exhibit features 30 pieces from different local artists, highlighting the theme of ‘Nature’, and throughout the months of May and June, Biodiversity Barbados will be highlighting the contributing artists and their art.

Today we admire this photograph by Lisle Warner (@warnerlisle). Lisle has presented the immense power of the waves as they mercilessly pummel the coastal limestone cliffs. Despite the wealth of resources available in our marine areas, climate change is causing sea levels to rise which has poorly understood consequences for our coastal communities and their businesses. The ocean is bountiful yet pitiless, and both awe-inspiring and frightening.

Tune in again tomorrow for our next highlighted artist and art combo.
