The picture consists of three elements: dice, hands, and background. Dice contains three photos of “bud”, “biodiversity” and “destroyed forest”, which represent three status of biodiversity, i.e. “birth”, “existence” and “destruction”. The hands represent human influences on nature, and the background consists of mountains and city. This picture shows that human impact on nature are expanding. And for biodiversity, just like a dice, to be or not to be, that is all in a thought. (Designed by Fangpu Liu and Lina Zhao. Photos by courtesy of Fangpu Liu)
