Creative conservationist Asher Jay is an international adventurer whose paintings, sculptures, installations, animations, ad campaigns, and films all have a single purpose: to incite global action on behalf of wildlife conservation. Much of her best-known work spotlights the illegal ivory trade, including an animated billboard in Times Square and a project aimed at China's ivory-hungry rising middle class. Jay's travels have made her a witness and storyteller; she has combated illegal wildlife trafficking, promoted habitat sanctuaries, and illuminated humanitarian emergencies. Her core message is about biodiversity loss during the Anthropocene—the “Age of Man.” “The power of art is that it can transcend differences, connect with people on a visceral level, and compel action,” she says.
