Endangered Species, Endangered Buses

Artist Todd Gilens has implemented a fascinating new public art project that highlights the link between how we treat each other, and how we treat other forms of life.

The project is called Endangered Bus. Todd has placed photos of several imperiled species on San Francisco MUNI buses to highlight the similar challenges we face addressing these collective problems: saving endangered species on the one hand, and providing affordable, reliable public transit on the other.

You can interact with the project. Whenever you see an Endangered Bus in San Francisco, tweet your sighting with the #endangeredbus tag, or post photos on Flickr with an endangeredbus tag. The buses travel different routs every day, so keep your eyes peeled.
