Forests and Oceans are both critically important and threatened, by overuse, pollution and destruction.  Other habitats are equally important and threatened, but these two are habitats that we humans know somewhat and appreciate.  All habitats are essential for the species of plants, animals, insects and microorganisms that inhabit them, and they influence and stabilise our climate: temperatures, rainfall, ocean currents and more.  Here birds and fish are representative of all those species, again, ones that we recognise and care about.  We know now that these are all linked biologically (fish proteins are found in trees near rivers far inland, for instance).  Because I see a kind of equivalence between birds in forests and fish in the ocean, I've mixed them up here, and so there are fish in trees and birds everywhere. This series is meant to be a celebration of the diversity and richness of nature, and the life that we should be protecting.  They're also just great fun to create and intended to be a celebration of life.
