Artist and conservation activist Jessica Potter uses her unique illustrations to develop an understanding of the natural world. Her recent advocacy work in Puerto PeƱasco, a beach town off the Northern Gulf of California, allows Jessica to call attention to the impact of tourism can have on intertidal ecosystems and the many creatures that inhabit them. Jessica Potter is a recent graduate of the School of Life Sciences at Arizona State University, with a Bachelor of Science in Conservation Biology and Ecology. She is passionate about developing new and creative ways to form closer relationships between people and the natural world. While completing her undergraduate thesis with Barrett, the Honors College, Jessica discovered how she could use her illustrations as a tool to teach the public about ecosystems and promote their conservation. With her artwork, she hopes to capture not only the unique qualities of species and their habitat, but also to celebrate the meaningful interactions between humanity and nature. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
