What If Deforestation Happened Where You Live?

Deforestation can be easy to ignore when it happens in far-away places. People might be quicker to act, however, if their hometowns were being destroyed. In a beautiful video (best viewed on full-screen mode), artist Maya Lin brings the idea of deforestation to some of the most famous parks in the world. It’s part of the What Is Missing project, trying to create a memorial to the species going extinct throughout the world.
