A collective exhibition by KESAN

Overshadowed for decades by civil war, the mountains of the indigenous people in northern Karen State may seem to be an unlikely sanctuary for wildlife, but in fact contains one of the last environmental treasures of the region. Endangered species such as the tiger and clouded leopard still call the place home amid lush forests.                                  The Salween Peace Park proponents argue for a sustainable alternative to megadams, strip mines, and top-down protected areas like national parks. This unique project in Myanmar
is part of a global movement of people who choose to stand up for the right to live on their
traditional lands, rather than acquiescing to the tide of global development.
