Data Visualization of Critically Endangered Fish I created the composition based off of data compiled from the IUCN Red List. The illustration features a human silhouette at the center of silhouettes of the fish, to both show their relation to the six-foot human and indicate that the decimation of the ocean is strictly due to human activities.
Close-Up Thumbnails Detail of the poster. Each silhouette features a critically endangered fish as defined by the IUCN Red List; the scientific name, the common name, and the indigenous habitat are listed underneath. The colors and dots correspond to the legends on the left of the poster, indicating the cause of population decimation, original versus previous population, freshwater or marine origin, and sexual maturity compared to lifespan.
