What will be left of the desert if we continue to destroy natural habitats with global warming?

Deserted is all about looking into different desert landscapes, with a focus on the effects of climate change and the nature that survive through the destruction.

Global warming is always linked with melting glaciers and rising sea levels. What about the effects on warmer environments such as the desert? They’re being affected too despite the lack of knowledge and understanding. So, what can we do to raise awareness? Through my research I looked into desert landscapes, and those affected by fire and drought, whilst also focusing on how the indigenous plants are the ultimate survivors. Following on from my research and sampling I created a final piece inspired by nature with links to sustainability and what we can do to prevent further devastation.
